We currently have the facilities for building multiple "flavors" of
rescue disks for a single architecture, thanks to Eric D.  Remember
that you need to usually chnage the kernel and the modules, in sync.

As for documentation, slink documentation already talks about how to
change the kernel in the rescue disk, etc.  I'm sure that might change
a bit for potato, but I haven't started on that yet.
