Thank you all for the replies. I've done this by installing Owl onto
IDE HDD, recomiling kernel with the libata and scsi_sis modules,
booting off that kernel, and installing Owl from HDD.

I couldn't boot off FDD cause there is no FDD on my machine and I
couldn't do insmod due to unreferenced symbols.

Anyway, your replies have pushed me in the right direction. =)
