Never got a response to this...
Since I like things clean and simple, it would make much more sense -
assuming this can be done reliably - to just boot into single user mode,
rather than using SystemRescue/LiveCD/DVD.
Googling appears to say it is fine, as I saw lots of references to doing
a fsck on /usr when booted into single user mode, which suggests that
/usr is not mounted when in single user mode.
Is this correct?
If so, I see no reason to use a LiveCD/DVD, booting into single user
mode is all that is necessary.
