[LinuxBIOS] Bochs is too slow while loading the Linux

    I am using freebios to load Linux on SC2200 (GEODE platform).
    I am using Bochs for the interrupt callback support.
    LinuxBIOS loads Bochs into the RAM and gives control to it 
   Bochs in turn loads Linux.
    Linux kernel size is around 512 MB.
    Bochs is taking around 12 sec to load Linux which is unacceptable as
per as system requirements.
    Bochs itself is too slow in executing the things.
    I observed that it is around 20 times slow than LinuxBIOS which is
executing before Bochs.
    Please help me in fixing this problem.
Thanks in advance
