installing MILO on UDB, RedHat 2.018

After much travail I have RH installed on my new UDB. Unfortunately
it won't boot without the aid of a floppy disk containing MILO. Once
milo is loaded from the floppy it will boot from the hard disk with
boot sda1:vmlinux.gz root=/dev/sda1
and will perform software (non-power-off) reboots until the cows come
home thereafter.
I guess that I need to get MILO into the boot blocks of the drive:
how do I do this? If it's already on there, what do I need to enter
for these values in the ARC console?

Cheers, Robin.

PS I gather that I'll need a special bracket to mount a 3 1/2" drive
inside the UDB. Does anyone know where I could get hold of one of
these (preferably in the UK): 2 1/2" drives are rather small/pricey.
Does the 3 1/2" option run any risk of causing overheating problems?
