I'm using the potato milo, which is build against 2.0.36 I think. That
Can you ls the disk? Do you see the kernel there? Theres a link and
the real file. Maybe it doesn't like the link, try the real file.
Or try to copy the kernel to a fat floppy and boot that.
You might also want to try the newer milo posted here before. As soon
as Falk his current work in progress the cvs boot-floppies should
build milo disks as well, that might be worth another try.
I will ask falk to upload a set of milo disks to
ftp://rut.informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/boot-floppies/disks-alpha/ as soon as creating them works.
