Create a DOS bootdisk, download loadlin.exe or copy it off your linux CD
and put it on the boot disk.
Then copy the old kernel (I hope you did a bzImage!) to the bootdisk and
do something like:
shell=a:\loadlin.exe a:\bzimage root=/dev/hda3
Put a "1" at the end if you want it to go into single user mode..
That should help I hope!
