does the Fedora 9 Live CD support booting 'Linux rescue' mode? I ask
because I am ignorant of this but if it does, that is what will answer
the question best. Linux rescue mode will find the installation if it
can be found.

No, a new install would likely erase the whole hard drive.

You might want to tell us what the steps you did to install Fedora 9
upgrade from Fedora 8.
