Something like yard

Is there a debian package available similar to yard?

I have just uploaded Yard version 1.14 to Sunsite.  Yard is a suite of Perl
scripts for creating rescue disks (also called bootdisks).  A rescue disk
is a self-contained Linux kernel and filesystem on a floppy, usually used
when you can't (or don't want to) boot off your hard disk.  A rescue disk
usually contains utilities for diagnosing and manipulating hard disks and

New with 1.14:
Bug fixes
Bootdisk_Contents now incorporates material on using yard with Redhat 5.0 
Various code improvements -- all scripts under 'use strict' now
Documentation updated
Discarded convert_config script

LSM entry follows:

Title:          Yard - tool for creating custom rescue disks
Version:        1.14
Entered-date:   Sat May 16 20:55:37 GMT 1998
Description: Yard is a suite of Perl scripts for creating custom boot/rescue
	disks.  Using a compressed filesystem, it can put a standard kernel
	image plus about 2.4 meg of utilities on a single floppy.  Yard is
	also useful for creating self-contained Linux-on-a-floppy systems.
	You specify a basic set of files and utilities for inclusion and
	Yard handles many of the details.  Features:
	- File specs allow absolute and relative filenames, symbolic links,
	  file replacements and full shell-style globbing.
	- Automatically determines necessary libraries and loaders.
	- Allows stripping of binaries and libraries during copying.
	- Automatically regenerates ld.so.cache
	- Checks for broken symlinks
	- Checks /etc/{fstab,inittab,termcap,pam.conf} for common errors and 
	- Checks user directories and files mentioned in /etc/passwd 
	- Checks command files (eg, rc.local and .login) and scripts for
	  missing binaries and command interpreters.
	- Automatically performs filesystem compression and copying.
	- Can be used with or without LILO.
	- Can make single or double disk sets.
	- Extensive checking of user choices and execution errors.
	Requires: Perl 5, Linux kernel 2.0 or later
