using rescue disk to boot from root on hard disk?

Hi folks!

Does someone now if it is possible to use the new rescue disks to boot
up an installed system on the hard disk?

I want to have one in case lilo is not working. This worked fine with
the old boot disk (I just specified root=/dev/sda3) but this doesn't work
now, since kernel tries to load the ramdrive anyways. I also tried setting
load_ramdrive=0 but this seams to get overwritten by the kernel
parameters stored on the disk.

Thanks in advance,
