As far as I know this is still the case. The fact that there is still
no milo available for Jensen confirms this. So booting through ARC is
not doable.

A point that would be great to know, when using SRM, can the jensen
boot from floppy? If is it the case, using step 2c) in the README of
the installation disks should work nicely.

If not, as Chris Allegreta is saying, you have to get manually through
the procedure of the Jensen-HOWTO.

The rescue disk is a ext2 filesystem in the Jensen case, you should be 
able to mount it under Linux with the right option.
