 Did you load lspci module :)

Already told you it appear in lsmod.
But from what I see this command is not available in rescue mode.
I don't understand why if module is loaded it is not provided in rescue mode.
How do you switch from rescue to normal mode?

You can type: normal

 Anyway... new list of modules:
 chain fat biosdisk ext2 pci lspci

 And I formatted floppy as ext2...

OK... Now in rescue I can see hd0, hd1 I cannot do "ls (hd0, 1)" it
writes unknown device.

I also tried the following configuration:
menuentry "linux" {
        set root=(hd0,1)
        kernel /kernel-x86-2.6.23-gentoo-r3
        initrd /initramfs-x86-2.6.23-gentoo-r3

It compains that initrd is not available, so I guess I needed to add
insmod linux... But then I got "You need to load the kernel first".

Did you use that floppy?... For me it displayed the menu. Then with 'C' you can go to normal mode shell.

You have to use linux command to load linux kernel:
