Very cool. This is the kind of information I was looking for, thanks.
However it's unclear to me what initrd.gz to use. I tried the cdrom/ one
and eventhough it said it would try network install when the searching
for the cdrom failed it didn't continue. It let me configure my network
and that was it.
