    First thing that I would assume, is that you're using a 720K disk to
    load your kernel off of. I believe Linus stated back around the 1.3.70 stage
    that low denisity disks will no longer work, no matter if you're using bzdisk
    or zdisk. you will have to use a high density disk, loadlin, or LILO. Try
    remaking bzdisk with a HD disk, and you should be fine..
