The rescue cd provides a minimal Linux OS with tools that you can use to fix your system. Some of these tools are a basic shell, editor, partitioning tools etc. /mnt/sysimage should be your root (/) partition on the hard drive. When you chroot /mnt/sysimage you are in effect switching environments from the cd and simulating a root login into the OS on your hard drive.
