Do you still have that disk? There is a file on there named linux.
Delete it and replace it with a copy of /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.17.

If you don't still have the disk, boot your rescue disk (just like you
were going to do a fresh install), select a keyboard, activate your
swap partition, mount your linux partition(s), and then select "Make a
bootable floppy" from the menu.
