If people are still worried about this, I think making back up binary
copy to Floppy may halp.
# dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/fd0 block=512 count=2
THis always gives you complete recovery for base partition.
Oh, some knopix like CD will be nice to have to use thjis.
Now d-i CD is not as easy to use for recovery.
PS: Giving hardware access from console is sure call for trouble if your
