Yes..that looks very nice. I have been trying it out loaded into ram and
it seems to have all the tools i need plus my favorite file manager- emelfm. 

The gui with firefox works fine also. I also found another rescue cd
called finnix http://www.finnix.org/

It is console based only and based on Debian with the latest Debian tools
and kernel-2.6.14.

Now with these two CD's i have everything i need.
