What are rescue disks?
Many antivirus and disk repair utilities can make up a (usually
bootable) rescue disk for a specific system. This needs a certain
amount of care and maintenance, especially if you make up more than
one of these for a single PC with more than one utility. Make sure
you update *all* your rescue disks when you make a significant
change, and that you understand what a rescue disk does and how it
does it before you try to use it. Don't try to use a rescue disk
made up on one PC on another PC, unless you're very sure of what
you're doing: you may lose data.
