Create a rescue environment in /opt/rescue. This environment will contain backup versions of essential binaries (similar to BSD's /rescue or /altroot directory). It will reside on a separate read only filesystem. It will use Busybox with static linking so it is not dependent on any other part of the system for proper functionality.
