Rescue disk and Thinkpads (problem identified).

I had posted earlier about a problem getting Debian 1.2/1.3 installed
on a 365x thinkpad.  Several solutions were offered and in the end it
turned out that the people claiming that some thinkpads could not
handle the bzImage format were correct.  It was not the
"floppy=thinkpad" problem.  I didn't need that at all.

So, if it doesn't make the kernel too big, could we switch back to
using zImages on the rescue disk rather than bzImages?  It won't hurt
any other machines, and there are apparently a (small) number of
machines out there (some Thinkpads and some Toshibas I think) that it
would greatly help.
