With the milo & linload.exe floppy installed enter the following
command (neatness counts a whole lot on this step, so be careful!)

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

Should look like this:

[root@dcg /root]# dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/dev/sda1 bs=10240
144+0 records in
144+0 records out
[root@dcg /root]#

It runs about as fast as a P-70. Best way to increase speed is recompile
the kernel from async to sysc and double you disk I/O.
