Er... no. That's why it's an "ide" kernel; it only has support for

I'm not sure what you mean by the "binary 2" that is for laptops. You
should pull a copy of the standard rescue floppy and boot from it. At the
boot: prompt, enter:
(substitute whatever your root partition is for sda1) and go from
there. The rescue floppy doesn't have any Ethernet (except Intel
Etherexpress Pro 100) driver in the kernel - it expects the drivers to be
in /lib/modules/2.2.15 (and they will be), so you need to load the
apppropriate drivers so that you can install the normal kernel image.
I hope that helps,
