Since the CD-ROM works in Linux (on another machine), perhaps you should
try using a floppy disk to boot from.  (Look on your distribution's CD
for their floppy disk images and use rawrite.exe to put it on a floppy.)
This would allow you to get the system up and going and then you might
be able to mount the CD-ROM and proceed with your install.

If that doesn't work, can you post details on what you're trying with
loadlin?  ie, how you're invoking it (From the command line or with a
batch file?  If with a batch file, what are the contents of it?), what
other files you have alongside loadlin.exe and your kernel image, that
sort of thing.
