I believe something like
    load (cd0)/vmlinuz-2.6.20-1-footbridge (cd0)/initrd.gz
should work, but this is untested since I have no CATS.

If someone figures it out, that would be appreciated because the
installation manual doesn't cover CATS fully at the moment.  More
information on #345317 would be welcome too (the magic string to
detect ABLE is needed in order for the installer to distinguish
between CATS/ABLE and Netwinder/Netrom).
