Booting in a way that lets you restore the data with out having to install the 
system. What you need depends on the kind  backup you have. In the most simple 
tape backup using tar or dump, you need the recur floppy,  (it atleast have 
tar, then you could restore the system with.

mount /dev/hda1 /target; cd /target ; tar x

Al decant backup system should have a restore utility that you could boot on 
from a floppy and restore the system.
