Well,  if you're using the bash shell,  it does that automagically.  You
can even edit the commands you recall with unix (emacs/vi) editor keys.

The rescue disks use ash instead of bash;  I don't know if it can do the
same thing.  Once you get the system installed,  tho,  you're default
shell will be bash.
