I had not finished, then I saw "for fast delete" proposed. At that time one sentence was really not good, bad touch into one direction. English is not my native language. But now it should be nearly ok (please correct if not). Loadlin is (still) in many Linux distributions - my Suse 9.1 DVD included unfortunatly the 1.5 Version, not 1.6 Version. --184.108.40.206 04:47, 3 December 2005 (UTC) Dieter
Windows support ?
Which Windows versions are supported ? I doubt it works in NT based versions.
--It requires "real mode" to run so I suspect the latest Windows that it can support is Windows 98. The Wikipedia Windows ME page specifically lists that it broke programs which required "Real Mode", and Windows ME was the next step after 98.

recently loadlin has been shown to fail to load big kernel/initrds, when its offspring linld succeds. this is interesting when one wants to install linux (here ubuntu) with no bootable means other than the currently installed windows. linld: http://troglobit.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?LinLd loadlin/linld usage to install notably xubuntu: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=37432 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:46, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I think this article should be revised, I download Loadlin, boot into DOS, tried to execute the exe. it says loadlin can't run in Dos... I tried it in Windows 7 x64 and it asks if I want to install loadlin, i say yes, but then it says it can't run there either because it's a 16 bit program or something.
Software is pretty useless these days.
