Bootable Rescue CD-ROM - Debian

I'm looking for a bootable rescue CD-ROM with some Linux-based OS on it (preferrably Debian). It should include utilities like fdisk and mkfs, parted, grub, bash (please, no ash!), vim, ssh and a reasonable ftp (what about ncftp) client. lynx, X are nice, but not a requirement. It should be capable of mounting common filesystems like ext2, xfs, vfat. I've looked into Knoppix, which is a little overweighted (KDE3) and somehow failed to get along with a chrooted lilo the last time I used it (rendering the disc essentially useless for my purpose). Maybe a customized Knoppix CD-ROM would do ...

    I'm looking for a bootable rescue CD-ROM with some Linux-based OS on it
    (preferrably Debian). It should include utilities like fdisk and mkfs,
    parted, grub, bash (please, no ash!), vim, ssh and a reasonable ftp (what

    somehow failed to get along with a chrooted lilo the last time I used it
    (rendering the disc essentially useless for my purpose). Maybe a
    customized Knoppix CD-ROM would do the trick.

    Any comments? What do you use?

    You can check out the Superrescue from the Kernel distri mirrors
    ([url]ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/dist/superrescue/v2[/url])

    Its RedHat based... but pretty useful.

    I've been looking at Timo's Rescue CD, [url]http://rescuecd.sourceforge.net/[/url]
    The author himself say that it has involved to a "debian on cd"-system, so
    it may be what you're looking for.


    BTW, I've been thinking about putting this rescue system on an old spare
    harddrive I have in my box (but that is not currently connected by IDE
    cable).

    Anybody have any hints on how to do that?

    Cheers,

    As I wrote in my original email, Knoppix seems to fight with a chrooted
    lilo. Don't know why though...
