Below is FAQ entry from translated to

How could I add my own files to rescueCD image?

  You should prepare tgz archives named pld[01]0[0-9].tar.bz2 that
contains all your files. Allowed dirs are: etc tmp var root home opt.
  Use rcdmod script (from iso or download site) to add
pld[01]0[0-9].tar.bz2 archives to iso image this way:

    rcdmod -i rescue.iso -f pld000.tar.bz2,pld100.tar.bz2  -o rescue-new.iso

  Upon booting RescueCD detects added archives and untar its contents to
root dir of the system. For archives named pld00[0-9].tar.bz2 this
operation is performed just after call to /sbin/init, before hardware
detection phase. If added archive contains /etc/rc.d/rc.rescue0.*, then
it will be run at this time.

  Archives named pld10[0-9].tar.bz2 are added after hardware detection
phase and environment setup. If archive contains /etc/rc.d/rc.rescue1.*
then those scripts will be run at this time.
