Rescue disk (Floppy) is DOS floppy.  You can read its content.  Then you
undestand what to do.  Roll your own rescue disk is the way to go.

1. Get access to functioning Linux with GCC.

2. Read kernel configuration from rescue disk.

3. Obtain corresponding kernel soirce and compile with above
configuration to confirm you have functioning environment.

4. Get source for driver and apply patch / add source to kernel source
tree and compile.  Make sure to use almost same setting as above and
enable driver for your card.

5. Copy newly made kernel to rescue disk as instructed in the disk.

6.  Boot.  Good luck :)
