Since u seem pretty comfortable with the idea of compiling a kernel ,
will this work for you ?
Do a minimal install of the 2.2 kernel and gcc on the 1GB partition with
possibly a very small swap carved out of the partition. Use this to
compile a 2.4/2.6 kernel . Format the 6.5gb partition as reiserfs and
use it as the boot partition.

There is a live cd with a 2.6 kernel. See  this thread.
It is in portugese though :-).
