bochs-2.0: description + notes

Bochs is a portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator. It includes emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. Currently, bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, or Pentium CPU. Bochs is capable of running most Operating Systems inside the emulation including Linux, Window 95, DOS, and recently Windows NT4.

NOTE: You must tell your X server about the bochs fonts. You can tell one X session to use them with:

          % xset fp+ /usr/freeware/lib/X11/fonts/misc

To make the effect permanent for future X sessions you probably have to edit some files in your X installation. For instance, you might include the xset command above line in your ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession file, or edit /var/X11/adm/Xservers to extend the default fontpath.

FreeDOS IMAGE: You can run the included FreeDOS image with:

          % bochs -f /usr/freeware/share/bochs/freedos/bochsrc
