Linload is a DOS executable which loads a kernel image from a DOS HD (or floppy) and then boots the rest of the Linux Operating System from an appropriate root partition. If you're a really good hacker, you can do a floppyless Linux install this way; however, this document will explain more traditional uses. When booting into Windows 95™ hit the F8 key when:
Starting Windows 95...
is displayed and select
Safe mode, command prompt only
C:\LINUX> linload.exe zimage root=/dev/hda2 ro
from there. If you are good with MS-DOS setups, you can code multiple AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, so that you have a menu setup and can choose which OS to boot.
