zipslack booting

I unzipped my zipslack distribution in D:\ and made a boot floppy.
What should i type on the "boot: " prompt?
i've tried /dev/hda1, /dev/hdb1, /dev/hda2, /dev/hdb2...
I always recieve some kernel error...

When I had a zip drive installed on linux, it appeared as /dev/sda4... this was a parallel 100 Mb zip drive. Might work?!
