Description of problem: 
The FC5 rescue CD fails to boot with a message indicated that it can't locate

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FC5 rescue disk (dated March 15, 2006) retrieved March 29, 2006.

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  boot system from rescue CD
Actual results:

The boot starts and then fails with the message Unable to locate base/minstg2.img

Expected results:

Boot into rescue mode

Additional info:

SHA1SUM of the downloaded ISO image was validated.
For an additional sanity check, I redownloaded the ISO and validated the SHA1SUM
but I received the same result.

WORK-AROUND:  I setup an HTTP based kickstart service and made the contents of
the rescue cd available.  I also copied the minstg2.img file from the FC5 CDs to
the rescue kickstart.  I was then able to use the rescue CD to boot up far
enough to tell it to use HTTP and provided the location of the service.  I was
then able to finish booting the system from the rescue CD files on of the HTTP
