Ah, the emergency shell? I tried, but df/ls were unavailable, cd /dist/8.0-
RELEASE gave ENOENT, so I had no clue how to proceed from there. I tried some
hard wired paths like /rescue/ls and /stand/ls but nothing there either.
If using this shell, then the how to definitely is incorrect. All in all, it's
only 300MB more for the USB stick, so yes it is preferable to use it.
