If we are going to live in a fantasy land of hope, I would add just one
thing - offer to open in an editor /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I can figure my way around resecuecd now.  But I remember vividly the
first couple of times I had to use it.  An explanatory manual would have
been helpful.  Perhaps as a downloadable PDF on the Fedora site/wiki
that I could have printed out or read from another computer or OS.  As
well, some onscreen indication of which file system I had mounted and
was working in.

I kind of agree with Chris Snook's sentiment -- but everyone has to use
rescuecd for the first time -- at least once.

Regards Bill
