Making the new disk bootable was the quite hard part: the floppy drive of the server turned out to be completely broken, not reading/writing disks. A scsi cd/dvd drive I added could make the machine boot from CD, but took ages to read the rescue cd, sounding like it had serious reading problems. So I used an ide cd-rom drive (but I had to disconnect one of the ide harddisks first to be able to use this), which the machine did see, and used that to make the whole system bootable again. It took a while of working, but I have a working server again.
