Check the Fedora Unity project.  Their ISO images include CD sets
created from the same package set as the DVD images.  You'll have to
learn how to use jigdo, though its much quicker if you start with the
DVD image (or a previous DVD image) already.  The last known FU release
was 02/04/2008 so it should be simple to install and then update.

As others have said, the rescue CD is a part of the DVD image set.
