I'm not sure if rescue mode will recognize a USB disk or
not. If it does, it should show up as /dev/sda1.  You can
  mkdir /tmp/usb
  mount /dev/sdb1 /tmp/usb
then copy things there.  If the USB drive has a FAT filesystem
you'll lose some of the file attributes (ownership, modes, etc.)
and may have problems with some filenames if you copy the files
directly, so it might be better to use a tar archive.  For that,
cd to the directory you want to save and:
tar -czvf /tmp/usb/my-tar.tgz .
(that last '.' specifies the current directory).

For rsync over ssh to another system you would let rescue
mode active your network, chroot to /mnt/sysinstall as it
suggests, then cd to the directory you want to save and:
rsync -essh -av . othermachine:/path/to/directory
It should prompt for the root password on the other machine,
then copy the files.

You should be logged in as root already in rescue mode.  You
need to 'chroot /mnt/sysinstall' when it tells you.  That puts
you at the root (/) of your installed system.  From there just
cd to the directory you want.  Use pwd (print working directory)
to confirm where you are and ls to list the files there.  You
can cd with an absolute path (starting with /) or if you omit
the leading / the directory you specify is relative to your
current position.
