As someone already said the kernel no longer fits.  But the "rest of
that story" is that there is now a larger floppy type image that can
be placed on a USB flash stick to perform in exactly the same way.
Just boot from the flash stick.  I use that method all the time on
stand alone machines, or to convert Windows machines.
