Hmm.  It makes me wonder how slink was ever supposed to boot the
installation system from the CD, and whoever laid it out seems to have
disappeared from this mailing list...

I guess you have to resort to the dreadful floppy, but since the kernel
can be loaded from the CD, you only need the root.bin one.  The boot
command will then be something like
boot dqa0 -flags "root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1".
