No, that's not it. I know that the DOS is FAT-16, because for three reasons:
1), I made it through DOS's FDISK, with large drive support turned off  2)
it registers as FAT-16 in DOS FDISK, Linux fdisk, and cfdisk (type 06), and
3) my hibernation drivers in DOS won't even install unless the partition is
FAT-16...  it won't install on a FAT-32, it will give an error.

I think I got it figured out now, thanks to the info from Peter. I marked
DOS as bootable, made Linux and swap non-bootable, and it works OK right
now. I'll try to re-install Debian from floppy later today. Wish me luck!
