Scripts for creating rescue disks

Yard is a suite of Perl scripts for creating rescue disks for GNU/Linux. A rescue disk is a self-contained kernel and filesystem on a floppy, usually used when you can't (or don't want to) boot off your hard disk, that contains utilities for diagnosing and manipulating hard disks and filesystems. Yard itself is not a rescue disk or boot disk; it is a tool for creating one. The user must do a certain amount of file choosing to make it work, but the result is a customized rescue disk that is complete, useful, and up-to-date. Yard does not use special, minimal files to make everything fit in a small filesystem. Instead, it uses standard files from your hard disk installation, so you can use as many diskettes as you need (usually 2-3, since everything is compressed)
