Look at loadlin + initrd. You'll have to reboot, but at least you don't
need a floppy and no CD. Store your test and stable kernels on dos C
drive, and boot up which ever one you like. I use a ramdisk to test my
kernels so that it does not affect my stable linux on my hard disk.

I do 80% of my stuffs on Linux including accessing mainframe from linux.
