Bochs-Tools is a collection of scripts and programs to be used together with the Bochs emulator. The main goal is to provide a more Unix-like interface to the emulator and to enable access to Bochs disk images from outside of Bochs. This project makes it very simple to copy an existing OS installation to a Bochs image (as long as Linux has write access to the relevant file system).
