The README.txt says:

      To boot on one of these from CD, find your subarchitecture from
      the table in the documentation, then enter `\milo\linload.exe'
      as the boot loader and `\milo\<subarch>' (where <subarch> is the
      proper subarchitecture name) as the OS Path in the `OS Selection
      Setup' menu.

Subarch in your case should be miata, I think.

But I'd really recommend using the SRM console, it's less of a kludge,
and it is hard to switch later, because of the incompatible partition
