       bochs - Portable x86 Emulator.


       bochs [bochs_options] [bochsrc_options]


       Bochs  is a portable Intel Architecture  32 (x86) emulator that runs on
       most popular  operating systems. Inside  the emulator,   it   can   run
       many operating systems including Linux and Microsoft(R) Windows(R).


       When you run bochs without one of the following options, it will search
       for a configuration file called .bochsrc in the current  directory  and
       your home directory and display the start menu.

       -q     With  this  option  the start menu will be skipped after loading
              the configuration file.

       -f configfile
              This option specifies the name of the configuration file.

       -qf configfile
              When you run bochs with this option, it will skip the start menu
              and use the specified configuration file.

       -n     With  this  option  bochs doesn't load a configuration file.  In
              that case the setup for the emulation must be done with  bochsrc
              options on the command line or in the start menu.

       -h, --help
              Print a summary of the command line options for bochs and exit.

       You  can override the settings from the configuration file with command
       line arguments, using the  same  syntax  as the bochsrc  file.  If  you
       have   any  spaces  in  your  command  line  arguments,  they should be
       enclosed  in  single quotes.  For information on Bochs command line and
       configuration file arguments, see the man page bochsrc(5).

         bochs -q 'boot:a' 'floppya: 1_44=a.img, status=inserted'
