Nope. It was just root.bin, but it was gzipped. Just as you find it on
official debian 2.1 CD #1.
My bet is that while syslinux finds out the ram disk image is compressed
and does the right thing, loadlin does not.
About trying the older kernel - I remember that I have had the very same
problem with debian 2.0, so it has been perhaps like this for ages...
