bochs : huv to create disks


I have to setup windows under Linux.

I am using bochs to install windows inside Linux.

I am succesful in loading the freedos image file and boot fromthe floppy.

Now heres my problem. I want to partition the drive, and install windows.

How to partition the disk?

I duno huv to make a disk (floppy or cdrom) from the local files.
Note: I have my windows setup in my hard disk.

Even when I link to the cdrom device, its not detecting.


Mandrake - 9.2

It's not recommended to use your physical hard disk for bochs. It's better to use hard disk images, make them by bximage because it shows you how to configure Bochs for the new image. If you want to use physically cdrom, I have to become root. As a normal user, I've have to use cdrom images made by dd if=[cdrom device] of=[output file]. Other problem, my cdrom was recognized in DOS but Windows not. I have done the following : Installing "Sysstem Devices" Default/ISA PnP Bus, "Hard disk controller" Acculogic/Acculogic IDE Controller, and it's works fine.

I hope it'll be useful, if not you can mail me.
