Can you (fdformat or superformat) the root floppy without errors?
# fdformat /dev/fd0u1440
# cp partroot-1.6.1.img /dev/fd0

    To boot the "part" system on the second disk, just press enter.

    Loading kernel...ready
    kernel boot messages...
    VFS: Insert the root floppy disk (at this point remove the boot
    floppy and insert the root floppy, then press enter).
    RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0 (about 15-30 seconds
    from this point the system should be loaded).

    boot: part foo=boo   "If you want to pass options to the kernel!"

    For more options press the F1 key.
