I'm trying to boot DSL from DOS and after the following steps:
1. make a bootlin dir
2. download a Loadlin.exe file
3. copy linux24, minirt24.gz from DSL CD to the bootlin dir
4. write a BAT file linux.bat
Code Sample
.\loadlin.exe .\linux24 initrd=.\minirt24.gz ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 nomce noapic quied BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix

5. boot to DOS and change to bootlin
6. run linux.bat

it boot well to DSL, however, if I add 2 to the above BAT file, it can boot to console and works well, butI cannot pass some options such as secure, host DSL.  
Did anybody do the same try and can give me some tips kindly?

you must precede with "dsl" e.g;

loadlin linux24 initrd=minirt24.gz dsl dma fromhd=/dev/sda1 restore=sda2 mydsl=sda2

And easier on the eyes is putting each parameter
on a single line in a file like 'options.txt' and then calling

> loadlin @options.txt
