Loadlin is a dos utility to load Linux kernel images.  Most installation
routines put a copy of the kernel in ram to initiate the install.  Thus your
disk organisation has little to do with loadlin asking for what it was built
for.  There's plenty of documentation on loadlin and its parameters.

Subject: image file?

whenever I try loading loadlin, it asks for an image file with options.
would I receive this message if I had the hdc part incorrect?
I think my d drive is hdc because I have to jumper the
removable drives as master in order for them to work.
Also, do I need to not load dtexp.bat since that is a DOS driver?
If I have no partitions, will hdx1 always be 1?
