This is a feature request. I tried to use the first 'etch' CD
as rescue boot system for a server system which went limbo.
My hope was that only keyboard / mouse input was blocked 
and i could still ssh or telnet into it. So this is not about recovering
a system on the same machine, but on a remote one.
I'm talking about the stage when network is configured, but no 
base system is installed yet. (Before the reboot)
So far the installer worked well, but i there were no ssh or telnet 
included. Not even ping. Maybe that's ok, for an installer on CD. 
However, i think it would be a nice feature to be able, once the network 
is established,   to load additional packages from the net into RAM
to be able to do any task that comes around. Yes, that would be 
_very_ handy. 



( -- Or maybe i just didn't find the feature...?)

There is already a udeb with a ssh client available.
If you need it you can install it on a console:

anna-install openssh-client-udeb

indeed it's very useful for debugging installation problems, such as
scp'ing syslog to another machine for analysis.

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,
