Description of problem:
The rescue mode on the Red Hat Linux CDs should contain Joe.  Joe has modes that
make it work quite similarly to most editors that people are familiar with
(emacs, pico, etc), which would be very helpful when recovering a system. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rescue CD
2. try to run 'emacs' or even 'jmacs'

We have space constraints and we have both pico and vi which should cover what
most people can relate to.

Ok my bad I was thinking jed, sigh.

I'll replace pico with joe - thanks for the suggestion!
