Why don't you copy an image of the kernel over to the c:\ and call it vmlinuz and then use loadlin.exe  with the following command

loadlin c:\vmlinuz root=\dev\hda2 ro

try that it's a bomb !!!

yes, the zip file unzip the raw linux os to c:\linux, it has the kernel and all the options to run a small linux system in UMSDOS

you can find some UMSDOS linux at
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/distributions/

try mini-linux, xdenu and monkey
