I don't know of an anchive where a 2.2.18pre21 kernel can be found,
though a work-around is this:

   boot with the rescue.bin that gives you all the modules errors.
   You will then have access to the /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.18pre21 that you
   need.  Now replace the kernel on the rescue disk as described in :
   Now you should be able to boot with that modified rescue.bin and the module
   symbols on your hard driver will be correct.
