The kernel that comes on the rescue floppy is using the latest Adaptec
driver. I guess it's broken (again, sigh!). (Hey, isn't Adaptec
supporting Linux? I guess it's a strange meaning for the word "support").

Quick fix: compile a custom kernel using an slightly older version of
that driver.

Slow fix: I will upload a new version of the boot floppies soon, with a
better driver. But that won't be this week. :-(
