Sorry for the "Me too!"-ish post, but I too see no reason for loadlin.
I've never needed / wanted to use it.  netinst is about 107 Mb.  If
you can't manage that, go the floppy route as suggested, though be
careful there; floppies are notoriously unreliable media.

    Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
