Yes, you can use the same floppy.
modify the floppy? No, you should be fine.

ramdisk image? I'm a little confused here at what you're trying to do. You
should have MILO and linload.exe on one FAT floppy, those can stay
constant. You kernel can either go on another floppy of the hard disk.
If your kernel was on a seperate floppy then do this.
MILO> boot fd0:vmlinux.gz root=/dev/xxxx
where xxxx is your root file systems (hda2, sda2, sdb6 etc......)
if it's on the hard disk then just pass MILO the device and directoryof
the kernel. For Example:
MILO> boot hda2:/boot/vmlinux.gz root=/dev/hda2
Does that help?
