rescue nomount should be documented on boot disk.

The nomount option to 'linux rescue' should be documented on the help
screens for the bootable CD. Nomount is the only way to rescue some systems:
- anaconda crashes if fstab isn't consistent with partitions. I'd report a
traceback, but it reboots right away.
- rescue mounts all fses read-write, which is bad.
We are planning on prompting the user before attempting to mount the existing
installation in our next release.
