A rather ignorant question, I am sure,
but what exactly is the point of the Rescue CD?

I tried the F-7 Rescue CD sometime ago,
and I was told to insert the DVD ISO,
which was not possible as there was no DVD reader on that machine.

But if there had been, could I not have inserted this,
and used it to "rescue" the system?
