What is the purpose of the RESCUE floppy anyway?
Is it documented anywhere in the Slackware distribution?

In the file ftp.cdrom.com:pub/linux/slackware/README_INSTALL you will
find this blurb:

    There is a rescue disk that contains an editor, lilo, several useful
    file system utilities, and man pages for all these things. This disk
    (rescue) and a compressed version of the same thing (rescue.gz) are
    written to a floppy with dd or rawrite.exe just like the bootdisk. It
    uses a cheap on-the-fly compression system to pack quite a few useful
    things onto a single disk.  I think you'll find it useful.

I have never used this.

1. Kernel panic with boot & rescue disk after kernel upgrade

Hi, everyone!
I have Red Hat 6.0 (kernel 2.2.5) and I upgraded (compiled) my kernel
to 2.2.12. After that, I made a new boot disk with 'mkbootdisk 2.2.12'.
I type 'rescue' in the Lilo prompt after I boot with my new boot disk
and when it's time to remove the boot disk and insert the rescue disk,
I get the following errors:
request_module[block-major-2]: Root fs not mounted
request_module[block-major-2]: Root fs not mounted
VFS: Cannot open root device 02:00
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 02:00

Did I forget to include something during the kernel upgrade?
Any help would be appreciated :)
