Last Hackweek I created a rescue system that is composed of a SUSE Linux kernel in an NSS (Named Saved System) and an xip2fs file system in a DCSS (Dis-Continguous Save Segment). This allows any Linux guest on a z/VM system to say "#cp ipl rescue" and have a fully functional SUSE Linux Enterprise system come up to allow them to fix what ever is wrong with the guest.

This Hackweek I want to try to figure out a way to take those two components and package them so that our customers could download them and put them on their z/VM system, using only typical z/VM tools. The rescue system is the output of a Kiwi build in the internal Build Service, which means it can be easily updated as needed.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
