Hmm, I was pretty sure it does.

That probably means dbootstrap segfaulted or similar... please file a
bug report. There's a "make log floppy" option or similar, perhaps you
can find something in the logs.

DOS filesystems currently never get created by the installer, the user
always needs to do it by hand :(

Weird. Did anybody ever get this to work?

Actually, I've pondered whether it might not be a good idea to have
this setup (kernel on FAT next to MILO) as standard. No more problems
with MILO incompatibilities... The only drawback I see is that you
need to give your kernel images 8+3 names.
