Bug#30759: Loadlin Installation Files (and likley disks, too)
The loadlin-based installation procedure files (install.bat, loadlin.exe,
linux, root.bin, etc) do not contain the nessecary drivers to read off of
vfat/fat32. Regardless of any opinions of Microsoft filesystems, this is a
bug, as it flat out prevents loadlin-based installation from Win95b/98.
My assumption would be that this bug/oversight is present in the floppy
boot disks as well.
These were downloaded from slink/main/disks-i386/2.1.2_1998-12-04/

O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed;
but better is Beer, if drink we lack,
and Water Hot poured down the back.
