Hi there!

First of all, thank you for the hints on win9x installation :.) There 
is something I thought of, considering winnt and newer nt-based 
systems - 2k/xp.
The SYS program only makes msdos/win9x bootable installations - AFAIK 
there is no similar tool for NT based systems. These install 
different files for bootup. But the speed increase of copying the 
system files from an existing winnt/2k/xp installation might be 
achieved anyway.
It should be possible to boot bochs from the winnt cd and continue the  
installation process, until the virtual hd is set up with partitions 
and formatted file systems. After that, it should be possible to go 
on as you pointed out, either mount the file via loopback or by using 
winimage in windows. Then, boot bochs once again from the nt cd, and 
chose to install windows. Setup is supposed to ask whether one wants 
to repair the installed version found. Maybe it's worth a try, just 
an idea... I'll try this ASAP.
