Physical Floppy Access
On Win32, to use a real floppy drive you need this:
floppya: 1_44=a:, status=inserted
line in your .bochsrc file.
You can also specify an image file to load as a virtual floppy.
floppya: 1_44=nameofimage.img, status=inserted

I am happy to report that as of the first quarter of
2000, Bochs is now under the LGPL license!
Seems to have sped up quite a bit
I had looked at bochs quite some time ago, and it was amazingly slow. I checked out the 1999 version now, and it's sped up quite a bit. It used to take almost an hour to boot ODDS, now it's down to a few minutes (on a Sparc Ultra 5 running SunOS5.5.1). 1.18 BogoMIPS!
The real advantage is that it runs on non-x86 systems (unlike DOSemu) where you can't just add another partition for a M$ OS. And it emulates an i386 (instead of an i8086 like pcemu, which is quite quick) and can therefore run more complex OSs than just DOS. ;-)
Oh, but it being $$-ware makes it suck bigtime, I must admit.
