It is always better to prepare for the worse before it happens and to have all the tools ready to hand. A Linux boot disk with a live file system on it could also be useful for forensics work where you do not want to disturb the original operating system.
This particular disk seems very useful. The FAQ states that tomsrtbt is:
"The most GNU/Linux on one floppy disk"
And that it can be used for:
"rescue recovery panic & emergencies
tools to keep in your shirt pockets
whenever you can't use a hard drive"
The goals for this floppy disk Linux were to get as much useful stuff onto one disk as possible and to be able to build and maintain itself under itself and that recovery and rescue functions get priority.
This is a useful tool that anyone running Oracle on Linux should consider. It can be found here.
