Why the Bochs Display a black screen without nothing?

I install Bochs on Ubuntu10.04 with compile,there is noting errors.

but when I running the linuximage(download from:

Below is code:

root@IManewer-linux:/home/imanewer/Oranges/linux-img# ls
bochsout.txt bochsrc minibootable.img README TESTFORM.txt
root@IManewer-linux:/home/imanewer/Oranges/linux-img# bochs -f bochsrc
Bochs x86 Emulator 2.4.5
Build from CVS snapshot, on April 25, 2010
00000000000i[ ] reading configuration from bochsrc
Bochs Configuration: Main Menu

This is the Bochs Configuration Interface, where you can describe the
machine that you want to simulate. Bochs has already searched for a
configuration file (typically called bochsrc.txt) and loaded it if it
could be found. When you are satisfied with the configuration, go
ahead and start the simulation.

You can also start bochs with the -q option to skip these menus.

1. Restore factory default configuration
2. Read options from...
3. Edit options
4. Save options to...
5. Restore the Bochs state from...
6. Begin simulation
7. Quit now

Please choose one: [6] 6
