Actually, the live Arch install media is not at all hostile to users,
and is the best recovery/rescue image I have found. It's not too big,
and includes all you need to copy your files. I can't really add
anything to the instructions posted here, but I thought I should point
out the usability of the Talking Arch image
for a very fast recovery CD/USB image that will come up talking and give
you all the rescue and recovery options you will need. Better yet, it's
possible to do
on the live system and install any package you need on-the-fly, even if
it's not already on the system.
Note: there was a time when I would have probably recommended grml for
rescue and recovery, but Talking Arch has all the same stuff, including
zsh with the grml configuration, and there's actually less steps
required to get it talking.
Additionally, if you do wish to install, it's really not as hard as some
would lead you to believe. There are scripts that greatly simplify the
process, and the documentation is quite easy to understand. It only
requires a moderate familiarity with the command line. Hope this helps.
