Where can I find the latest ADLO and BOCHS?
latest ADLO should be in CVS tree for LinuxBIOS v1.
as for latest BOCHS BIOS looks CVS for BOCHS program. it is reasonable
they made number of improvements to it in the last year (and possibly
number of time-dependent bugs). So it is a trade off which BOCHS BIOS you
want to use.
I want to boot windows 2000 with it?
yes, we could boot Win2K and unmodified linux with it.
the main problem here was that mainteance of the 16 bit bochs BIOS was
nightmare. number of static entry points, etc. it is what put off most
people (including me).
it is basically two conflicting goals here. one is legacy code which
allows you to boot windows, and then there's legayc-free bios in form of
LinuxBIOS. it just donesn't get along too well.
