OK, I almost suspected that. Thanks for the information and the
images, however it still does not work.

Booting your disk with the command above nicely boots the kernel,
but then I get a message like

  request_module[block-major-15]: Root fs not mounted
  VFS: Cannot open root device 0f:d0
  Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 0f:d0
  Rebooting in 180 seconds...

This still leaves me somehow clueless :-(.

Maybe it is a problem of the floppy controller? This claims
to be a SWIM3.
