We should add Xorriso, but only to BLFS (under CD/DVD Writing Tools),
and make a link on the backup page to that package. One other change
we should make: Make a rescue CD instead of a rescue floppy disk.
Reason? Floppies are SO out of fashion these days, and most computers
these days don't even have a floppy drive. I would modify the
instructions to create a CD image and use Xorriso to burn it.

I've been running in to that on some of my builds using Aptosid/Sidux
2010-02, with various development versions. I don't really remember my
past builds too much, so I just forget them and move on.
