It's evening and I'm home at last!
Ok, this is what is in mine .bochsrc

With this config I have 128 MB in Windows.
I've got a A-drive and a B-drive (2 images of bootable floppies).
I've assigned 2 IDE controllers to be active and have a 512 MB image-file and the CD-ROM on the first controller and also a 512 MB image-file as Master on the second IDE controller.
And finally Bochs starts in a window in Ambient.
I use Bochs V2.0.2 with the newly made GUI from Felix.
This GUI deletes all unnecessary lines in the config-file, perhaps that is the thrashing you were talking about targhan?
About the CDROM:
Like tomjoad said, just place a cd in the drive and Bochs will continue loading (well, if you have a bootable drive ofcourse
Also to answer td741, I installed Microsoft Office 97 from cd in Windows 95, so it works beautifully
I don't know if the GUI works with the latest Bochs. I guess I'll have to try this.
