Not necessarily.
You would be safer to boot rescue from an installer DVD, then choose to mount the filesystems for your compromised F9. Shutdown each system, move it to a trusted network, or off-net and attach an external disk to save files onto, put in the F9 DVD, then boot that DVD, not the compromised system's disk.

If you choose to start the network during rescue startup dialogs then you could save off files from the filesystems to elsewhere on the network, and could reasonably expect that there is no malicious software watching you do so since you booted the DVD not the compromised system.
