I just did a uname -a and I guess I do have a 1.1.94 kernel!
I got the base disks from ftp.debian.org/debian/disks-0.93R5.
I have looked around for the modules1.1.94 file but I don't see
one out there. I guess I don't know where to go from here.
Yes I did make my boot disk by selecting "make boot disk" for the install
