Description Bill Nottingham 2007-01-26 16:37:31 EST
This would mean either shipping only one boot image, or having boot.iso be
slightly different from rescuecd.iso. But I don't think that having rescue in
the menu when it won't actually work with just the provided boot is the best option.

It works just like it's always worked where you can enter the location of your
rescue image... and we've always had it listed in the help.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-01-29 15:20:30 EST
The cynic in me says 'people read the menu, they don't read the help'. Of
course, if we go to a single-stage boot CD, this becomes moot.

You can use it, you just need to point somewhere.  Not going to nuke it.
