So penguin 18 doesn't work.

That means it can't find a rootdisk image. You need to specify the
location of the root.bin as a ramdisk in penguin's settings. Once you did
that, you should be able to boot and install.

After installing, don't forget to remove the reference to root.bin (else
you won't be able to do anything but installing ;-)
