Bootdisk for ThinkPad

My Compaq died last Sunday, so I rented a replacement to take me to the
LSP specification meeting this weekend. Well the short version is that it
is an IBM ThinkPad, and the Debian 2.1 boot disks will not work. (root.bin
gets loaded as does the kernel, but there it hangs without uncompressing
the kernel)

Can someone point me to a rescue disk for the ThinkPad? I can install Red
Hat 6.1 and Caldera 2.3, but not Debian!

Please CC me on your reply, as I am not subscribed to debian-user at this
