I'm having a hard time finding out how a customer would go about restoring SMSQL backups of their system databases if the system databases were so corrupt (or just gone due to user or hardware error) such that SQL Server itself would not start? It seems SMSQL requires SQL Server to be up and running to do a restore. It seems like this should be an documented, but I can not find any reference to this situation. Thanks for any pointers!

Also check page 338 of the SMSQL admin guide.
