The main idea is to pull down a copy of the linux and initrd.gz files
from the netboot section of the ubuntu archive onto a c:\boot\ directory
I created a windows boot floppy that also contained the loadlin
executable, and booted it.
Then I used this command to start it:
a:\loadlin c:\boot\linux initrd=c:\boot\initrd.gz root=/dev/rd/0
vga=normal ramdisk_size=14972 rw --
Note that it references the linux and initrd.gz files that I downloaded
via the instructions linked above.
