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.
This option specifies the name of the configuration file.
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.
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).
