-<p>The other booting option that comes with Slackware Linux is LOADLIN. LOADLIN is a DOS
-executable that can be used to start Linux from a running DOS system. It requires the
-Linux kernel to be on the DOS partition so that LOADLIN can load it and properly boot the
-system.</p>
-
-<p>During the installation process, LOADLIN will be copied to root's home directory as a
-.ZIP file. There is no automatic setup process for LOADLIN. You will need to copy the
-Linux kernel (typically <tt class="FILENAME">/boot/vmlinuz</tt>) and the LOADLIN file
-from root's home directory to the DOS partition.</p>
-
-<p>LOADLIN is useful if you would like to make a boot menu on your DOS partition. A menu
-could be added to your <tt class="FILENAME">AUTOEXEC.BAT</tt> file that would allow you
-to pick between Linux or DOS. A choice of Linux would run LOADLIN, thus booting your
-Slackware system. This <tt class="FILENAME">AUTOEXEC.BAT</tt> file under Windows 95 will
-provide a sufficient boot menu:</p>

-
-<p>You will want to specify your root partition as a Linux device name, like <tt
-class="FILENAME">/dev/hda2</tt> or something else. You can always use LOADLIN at the
-command line. You simply use it in the same manner as it is in the example above. The
-LOADLIN documentation comes with many examples on how to use it.</p>
