Well, I was thinking that I was going to make a rescue disk.  It has
everything I need on a single disk except the PCMCIA module support,
so I thought it would be a good candidate.

Great.  I will try that.  Yes, what I need is a boot disk, however
specialized, with root file system on it and a very few binaries.
