Isn't this the same thing as the dd method, exept now a script does the work 
for you? I think Mark means we should make a list of some packages which are 
needed as a _rescue_ disk, not a bootdisk. 
Fortunately I never needed the first, and for a bootdisk I use grub. I do 
have some ideas what should be on them. I suggest at least the following:
grub/lilo, e2fstools (reiserfstools), dietlibc, util-linux, bash (or a 
smaller alternative?).
