Creates a boot/rescue floppy or CD

Zdisk lets you have a kernel and a rescue system on one floppy. The programs copies a kernel of your choice to a floppy and then adds a rescue system to the same floppy (the kernel can't be bigger than 975 Kb on a floppy, although it can be bigger on a CD). Zdisk has almost the same rescue system as ramf-86, except ramf-86 comes with a kernel.
