There are a few ways, but the simplest is probably:
- calculate offset of second partition using output from fdisk
- use losetup with the correct offset (see README.Debian)
- mount the loopback device
- put your debian package there
despite that, there are a few problems as listed in the PROBLEMS file.
one of them is that you can't install debian packages and manual
untarring corrupts the filesystem for some reason.
I wouldn't play much with GNU in Bochs if you aren't going to debug
and fix that stuff, it realy isn't a confortable environment for learning.
