Linux recovery or boot disc / cd with CCISS and USB 2.0 support??

Hello experts,

Looking for a linux boot disc / Cd that has

cciss -- Hp's smart array drivers
ehci-hcd -- usb 2.0 high speed support
-o loop
dd
prefer 2.6

Basically going to use to dd a partition on a smart array to a image file on a  usb hard drive.

Using something like dd if=/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 of=/mnt/usbdrive/test.img

knoppix didnt have the cciss drivers, sysrescd didnt have usb 2.0 o.O....

or somewhere that has good instructions on compile your own boot off cd custom kernel...?
