rescue mode should have at least all drivers installer has

Description of problem:
The installer was clearly able to access the dvd player I
needed to use to restore my old filesystem that had been
overwritten, since it was using the same dvd player to self-load
and to get the early rpms. But the rescue environment somehow
lacked the needed drivers (my old 7.1 rescue disk had stopped
working when I added the DVD player). I had to use Knoppix and a
Windows DVD burner to restore my environment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install off DVD iso
2.Try to access DVD from rescue mode.
Actual Results: No driver!
Expected Results: /dev/sr0
Particularly annoying in concert with the i810 X.org bug that stopped me in
mid-install, because it vastly raised the recovery effort level.
/dev/sr0 isn't the correct device node, it's /dev/scd0.
Yep, that the one I was missing.
