Discussion was more about 1GB instead of 700 or 800MB...

No, rather between 700 and 1000 MB, as needed.

Allthough i'm in favour of live-images of 1GB there is one risk:
With repair or netboot images the incentive to keep the image small
is obvious. Just like cd 700MB limitation of a cdrom.

Which is why there is also the proposal to also make a small rescue
CD with xfce or another small desktop; the big desktops would have
the needed space, and the people that need a CD would have a CD. And
the people that asked for a rescue system would have it. And the
marketing people could boast about having also xfce (or whatever) as
a desktop. :-)

System Rescue CD pretty much has the rescue CD market nailed down. If
you're just looking to make an openSUSE Rescue CD, IceWM or even
OpenBox is fine - XFCE or even LXDE is overkill. You just need
something that can exercise / test X Windows, unb0rk nine different
flavors of bootloaders, get the network up and running and chroot into
the rescue target. ;-)

I tend to use an openSUSE NET iso or a knoppix iso (usually very old,
but I always seem to have a copy about).
