According to the bochs website XP is reported to work under bochs.  If
so then all that would be needed is an upgrade of the copy of bochs
bios.  That should get you all the necessary bios services.

I tried this probally a year or so ago but it breaks the IDE
interface.   Since at the time the new bios didn't really offer that
much in the way of new features I didn't continue.

Fixing the IDE should be pretty simple.  Diffing the ide routines to
the current shows what Adam did to make them work.
