ErmineRescueKit is set of program packed with ErminePro into single, self-contained executable.
What is good for ?Install ErmineRescueKit somewhere on the disk and then wait for disaster :). When something bad happened to the system (like someone messing up with glibc, etc) ErmineRescueKit still provide programs that not affected and can be used for repair, emergency backup, etc.
Why not just reboot from the Live CD or USB and repair the system ?
