Ag! Sorry; that doesn't address booting from loadlin; never mind.

Ah! Here we go.




So, _probably_ what you want are:

| <http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-1.44/compact/root.bin>|

This last "install.bat" file you may need to edit to your particular setup; or you can just manually execute the correct line from that batch file.


Sorry to double post, but for these specific files, the address begins with


because Sarge supersedes Potato.

I looked through Sarge, and could not find analogous files, so I will use Potato, instead.

Besides, I have a particular affection for Potato. :-)

Perhaps if this works, someone can walk this newbie through an upgrade to Sarge. Of course, they would probably be twisting my ear and waggling their finger at my nose as they did so. {Blushes}

Hmmm. I can't seem to get in touch with either of these links, now. I know the one was good when I did the install, and now I have a half installed Potato Debian {all right, about five years out of date} on my machine.

I suppose I can look for the equivalant files for Sarge, however. :-)
