  I see. I thought netinst was a command on a normal system.

  Some years ago, I just burned a rescue CD and used it to upgrade.
Now I am using preupgrade. Yesterday, preupgrade made my computer
unusable. Now I want to try to preupgrade another computer, but I want
have a rescue CD first. Rescue CDs as I know them have options such as
a network upgrade or go into shell when you boot from them. I don't
see that on the live CD. I suppose at least you can boot from the live
CD and mount the local drive, though, right?

     Take care
