Old Windows with dos mode

Users of old windows with a dos mode such as win98 can use loadlin to launch the bootcode. Copy the following files :

   vmlinuz.womp to c:\womp\vmlinuz
   loadlin.exe  to c:\womp\loadlin.exe
   womp.bat     to c:\womp\womp.bat
   init.gz      to c:\womp\init.gz
Then just launch womp.bat.

In some rare cases launching with loadlin will lead to bad hardware detection, so just try and see. The boot parameters as described just before can be specified in the file womp.bat.
