I just uploaded the final release of LOADLIN-1.6 to sunsite and tsx-11.
The new features are needed for kernels >= 1.3.73 together with
big high loaded images (bzImage) and initial ramdisks (initrd).

If you have one of the 1.6-pre-releases, please upgrade.


Title: LOADLIN, loads Linux with command line from DOS
Version: 1.6
Entered-date: 01MAY96
Description: This is a boot loader for Linux that runs under MSDOS.
It can boot Linux from a DOS prompt or CONFIG.SYS, and fully
supports the command line feature of the Linux kernel.
This new version also supports bzImage+initrd, i.e it
can load directly 'high' and can load the ramdisk.
bzImage+initrd (since 1.3.73 in the official kernel)
was jointly developed by Werner Almesberger (LILO)
and Hans Lermen (LOADLIN).
