    Is this possible? I've only had my mac for a few weeks, and this is the first unix program I've installed, so, you can guess how frustrated I am. Ive been trying to run Bochs 2.0.2 on 10.3.2, sorry, but there are a few games and cd burning applications on windows that I absolutely NEED. Can someone please show me how to use bochs?

    Why in God's name would you go to the trouble of installing the UNIX version when the MacOS X binary version is readily available?

    Sorry, I am using the binary, but to edit the configuration and make the disc image needed, you have to use the unix terminal :\
    Anyways, I've played around with the configuration, but when I run bochs, this error comes up:
    RIP > CS Limit
    whats wrong?

    Sorry to inform you, but bochs, especially 2.0.2, is REALLY slow. you'd be better off getting Virtual PC if you really *need* it. May i ask what programs you really need? anyway, go on their website and figure out how to build it from the source code. the newer versions are a bit faster.

    Running bochs

    If you have downloaded the binary, try (in the Finder), going into the dlxlinux folder, and double-clicking the bochs.scpt icon in there, see how you get on with that.

    Cheers
