did you make a custom boot disk? If you have a kernel which works,
you should be able to boot from that mounting your existing root
partition as the root partition. I can't really get clear information
whether the udma66 flavor of 2.2.20 boot-floppies doesn't support
Promisa ATA100, I think it does not for some reason.
