Yes, milo from potato_r0 works for me (but see below).

Another stupid omission on my side. Of course, I can ls
the "rescue" floppy and I can see both, the link and the
real kernel file. I just tried to load "vmlinux.gz" without
looking what's there. (Well, the name "linux.gz" is even
compatible with the current potato docs, so sorry again.)
Your boot floppies finally work for me. All relevant hardware
is detected correctly (PC164 board itself, Symbios based SCSI
controller, DEC 21143 NIC, ...) Great!

The Milo story for PC164 goes on ...
On first sight, I thought that my Browser fooled me while
downloading the current Reinauer 2.2-18 Milo from the SuSE
http (grrr) site. And this was indeed the case!
BUT: After using wget to catch the Milo image from SuSE and
doing a ftp-download of your latest milo-image-disks (which
gave identical results after "decoding" your image disk)
I *still* have to say: Milo 2.2-18 does not work for me!
I already dropped a note to Stefan Reinauer, but got no
answer so far (hmmm, holidays?).
