If anyone knows of one, I would be very interested.  I am very hesitant to use a backup scheme that doesn't have a clear recovery path.

Fair point. I've used the "rescue" mode on the centos boot CD before,
but its not too hard to build a custom centos livecd.
I made a pxe bootable version for use at work so we can ssh into it
without needing an IP KVM, but I'll try and make a new ISO for you if
you like.
