Bug#505113: rescue-mode requires a root filesystem to be useful

Package: rescue
Version: 20081029
Severity: normal

In trying to rescue my system, which had a screwed up RAID/LVM
configuration (#505111), I gave the d-i rescue image a shot. I tried
to install the cfdisk and network-console components, but d-i
wouldn't let me unless I told it where my root filesystem was.
Unfortunately, I could not answer that question, since I first had
to rescue the root filesystem. As a whole, rescue mode was
completely unhelpful.
