I can get it to find my CD-ROM drive, but it fails with code: 0003.

According to http://bochs.sourceforge.net/doc/docbook/user/bios-tips.html
that means:

For this error, the cdrom support has not been compiled in Bochs, or Bochs
could not open the file or device. This is what you get if Bochs is not able
to read the cd.

Could you give me pointers as to what CD support I should add/enable in


Here is the output of the boot (First it tries the CD, then the HDD):
