In version 2.40 the outdated FreeDOS guest docs got deleted.
You must read the message regarding software licenses in
Section 1.6 before you install or use MS-DOS, OS/2, DR-DOS,
or any other DOS as a guest operating system in Bochs.
DOS works for me inside BOCHS, CDROM not tested, mouse OK, XDMA buggy (hadn't I reported this as BUG?) so disable it, network untested, USB untested, sound untested.
Please re-add FreeDOS, even if the amount of info will be minimal.
If I brew a FreeDOS floppy image, would you add it into the package (besides or instead of the 10 MiB Linux) ?
The "guest-dos" can be renamed to "guest-ms-pc-dos", and mention DRDOS/OpenDOS/EDR-DOS (partially open source but not GPL, RTFL and RTF 6.1 yourself) too, and link to FreeDOS not suffering from licensing problems.
