Description Bill Nottingham 2007-01-26 21:37:31 UTC
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.


Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-01-29 20:17:29 UTC
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 20:20:30 UTC
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.
