You wont belive it, my troubles disappeared. A friend emailed me a i386 
ecos bootsector and it worked. hmm, then I tried to copy my own bootsector 
on the floppy and it worked as well! The solution: I used another floppy. 
My first floppy seems to be somewhat broken! I cannot imagine how this can 
happen, but obviously, the floppydisk is damaged in that way, that ecos 
with stubs can start and download an executable, but after this it crashes! 
Lesson learned: never trust a floppy disk ;)

Thanks to Nick and Jesper for their help.
