Doesn't matter.  Boot-floppies is just the name.  It covers CD-ROM,
install from local disk, network, whatever.

Doens't seem right.  Shouldn't the line be something more like:

 loadlin.exe compact\linux root=/dev/ram ro initrd=images-1.44\compact\root.bin

[Not sure about the back slashes.]

I really need something that will work on official CDs with stuff in
the official locations.

Also, you skipped the -udma66 kernel ?
