From the way things sound VMware has much higher functionality compared to
Bochs. Bochs will emulate an Intel 386 based computer, but has no support
for com ports, networks, sound, and direct access to the filesystem. I've
used bochs and in it's current form it's good for little more than an 
interesting and slow toy. It does however show great promise. The VMware 
product sounds more like a complete and useable package.
