Burn it to CDR/W?  On an emergency boot floppy you'll probably
ditch all the nonessential stuff like sound and ethernetworking.
So I'll doubt you'll get a really big kernel for a disk that's
just for fixing or partitioning a borken hard disk, etc.

Better:  arm yourself one of those bootable mini distros like
lnx-bbc (~50MB download).
