Quick note about rescue systems.

But this still gives me all the build environment stuff (gcc, binutils, make, kernel source+headers etc). I only need things like fileutils, compiled kernel, e2utils, (u)mount and some server software (ssh, sendmail, apache and/or bind)

Perhaps Mondo Rescue is what you need, although it doesn't seem to be 
working with 2.4 kernels as of yet.

And there's Mkcdrec, which seems to be working with 2.4 kernels.

Hope this helps.
