a loader (running under DOS) for LINUX kernel images
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)
LOADLIN also can load out of Virtual-86 mode (which is normal when
using EMS drivers) if a VCPI server is present.
lodlin for Debian
You will find loadlin.exe.gz in /usr/lib/loadlin. Copy that file
plus a kernel (and optionally ramdiskc contents) to your dos partition,
and ungzip it with gzip -d loadlin.exe.
Read the instructions and then you should be able to boot Linux
One additional tool is included in the loadlin package:
