In progress.  I just finished compiling rescue, root & drivers disks.
I still have some glytches in basedisks construction, but I hope they will be
fixed very soon (I need to download the latest updates to potato first).

Which kernel did you try ? 2.0.35 or 2.2.1 ?

You can get the latest kernel-image-2.2.13 package from potato, extract the
kernel it contains, then put it on the rescue disk (mount it as ext2 floppy and
replace the "linux" file).  If you don't need modules to load, you can ignore
the drivers disk, otherwise you also need to replace the modules.tgz archive on

Hope it helps.
