June 3, 2001 (The INTERNET) - The Bochs IA-32 Emulator Project unveiled a new
version of the popular Bochs emulator to the public today, coming on the heels

easy to use interactive disk image creator, multiple processor emulation

support using Bochs-RFB, dual virtual hard drive support, and a text mode
interface. You can find Bochs binaries for Windows and Linux (along with the
