The easiest way to do this is to boot your rescue floppy (you _do_ have
a rescue floppy, don't you?), pretend as if you're going to do a fresh
install, but _do not_ partition the hard disk. Instead, accept the
alternate selections and mount the partitions you already have.

When all your partitions are mounted the installer will offer to make
you a boot floppy, and will write the kernel you're currently using to
