From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-3 i686)

Description of problem:
When booting from bootnet.img and entering into rescue mode via HTTP or FTP,
/sbin is missing from $PATH and /usr/sbin/rpm does not exist.  Doing the same
from NFS works okay.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  boot from bootnet.img floppy
2.  use "linux rescue" at initial prompt
3.  select either HTTP or FTP for rescue method

Actual Results:  See Description.

Expected Results:  NFS, HTTP, and FTP rescue should drop you into basically
identical setups.

There are severe space constraints on FTP and HTTP because we have to store the
rescue image in RAM.
