I think its 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. ;-)
