Milo problem for EB64+ Board

Hi,

I am intalling linux-alpha on eb64+ by milo.bios.arc.
However, I am stuck perhaps as many in the middle of
running vmlinux.stripped.gz. The problem is milo
does not handle ext2 system properly. "ls fd0" is
cheered by

VFS: Disk change detected on device 2/0
ext2_mount: bad magioc 0x17c1
MILO: Cannot access device fd0

However, "ls -t iso9660 sr0" works fine.
I know that my floppy is somehow changed into 288Mbyes
stuff. Could someone tell me a big cure for the problem,
because I am an only beginner in the field ? By the way,
I use #9 GXE64PCI card (S3 864) which is supposed to work according
to documents. In fact, I have just purchased it for linux.
I hope the video card is not broken as in the Kim's case in this
archive.

Modestly looking forward to hearing from some of you.
