bximage - Interactive Disk Image Creator for Bochs
Bximage is an easy to use console based tool for creating disk images,
particularly for use with Bochs. It is completely interactive if no command
line arguments are used. It can be switched to a non-interactive mode if all
required parameters are given in the command line.
When you run bximage without one of the following options, it will appear in
interactive mode and ask for all required parameters to create an image.
- Create a floppy image.
- Create a hard disk image.
- Image mode (for hard disks only - see the bochsrc
sample for supported options).
- Image size in megabytes (e.g. 1.44 for floppy image, 10 for
hard disk image).
- Quiet mode (don't prompt for user input). Without this
option bximage uses the command line parameters as defaults for the
interactive mode. If this option is given and one of the required
parameters is missing, bximage will fall back to interactive mode.
- Print a summary of the command line options for bximage and
parameter specifies the name of the image to be created.
