loadlin

loader (running under DOS) for LINUX kernel images

Variants:
LOADLIN-1.6 is highly adaptable to different DOS configurations, and now has very few loading restrictions. It makes use of extended memory and also can load big kernels (bzImages) and ramdisk images (initrd) directly high.

LOADLIN also can load out of Virtual-86 mode (which is normal when using EMS drivers) if a VCPI server is present.

The loadlin package also includes the freeramdisk program, which can return memory to the system when a ramdisk is no longer needed.
