Assuming that you have linload and milo on a floppy, simply put the floppy
in its drive and type the following command:

# dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/dev/sda1 bs=10240

That'll get it on /dev/sda1, then reboot and edit the WNT ARC boot options
so it'll know where to autoboot from. Yell if you need any more
