A more advanced  one CD bootstrap that gives you a usable desktop is a

vitally important to keep a usable rescue mode available as part of
every self-contained piece of install media that's going to be
offered.

Not to start a completely different flame war, but... Ubuntu seems to
manage both a single CD install and a usable rescue mode. I have not
actually used Ubuntu, so I don't know exactly *how* usable the rescue
mode is, but the docs indicate it's there and can do a thing or two. ;-)

Ubuntu for x86 is two CD's: one is x86 install and the other one is x86 Live CD. I'm not 100% sure, but I think only x86 Live CD can be used as a rescue CD but x86 install not.
