Booting pc164

What is the procedure for booting
a pc164 (Aspen Durango) and starting
a Linux installation? Is there a HOWTO?

The boot Jumper is out (Windows NT
ARC firmware is loaded). I've configured
the boot menu to boot from the floppy disk
as follows:

LOADIDENTIFIER linux
SYSTEMPARTITION multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)
OSLOADER multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)
OSLOADPARTITION multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)
OSLOADFILENAME
OSLOADOPTIONS nodebug

When I "verify boot selections", I get:

Checking linux...
SYSTEMPARTITION cannot be found, value is:
multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)
OSLOADER cannot be found, value is:....etc

When I "boot linux" the floppy diode lights,
and I get:

Error: Device error, press andy key to continue

Is this the correct procedure?
