       bximage - Interactive Disk Image Creator for Bochs


       bximage [options] [filename]


       Bximage   is  an  easy  to  use  console  based  tool for creating disk
       images,  particularly   for   use  with   Bochs.   It    is  completely
       interactive  if  no  command   line  arguments   are  used.   It can be
       switched to a non-interactive mode if all required parameters are given
       in the command line.


       When  you  run  bximage  without  one of the following options, it will
       appear  in  interactive  mode and  ask   for  all  required  parameters
       to create an image.

       -fd    Create a floppy image.

       -hd    Create a hard disk image.

              Image  mode  (for  hard  disks only - see the bochsrc sample for
              supported options).

              Image size in megabytes (e.g. 1.44 for floppy image, 10 for hard
              disk image).

       -q     Quiet   mode  (don’t prompt for user input). Without this option
              bximage uses the  command  line parameters as defaults  for  the
              interactive  mode.  If  this  option  is  given  and  one of the
              required parameters  is  missing,  bximage  will  fall  back  to
              interactive mode.

       The filename parameter specifies the name of the image to be created.
