An example of letting people choose between a linux2.2 kernel, and a
linux 2.4.0 kernel.

yes and no. If you look at the path I gave you, 

the exact line IT uses, is

loadlin.exe linux root=/dev/ram ro initrd=root.bin

On the other hand, yeah, you'll need to copy extra kernel images into that
directory, to make the script work ;-)
I'm not sure whether loadlin will actually take ../ paths.
(but I think it IS happy with forward slashes)

Well, contrariwise, I need the official CDs to work! Which requires
changing them anyway.

For example, I haven't found an hpt-udma66 kernel on them.

If you want to restructure the script so that it works in a way you like
better, feel free.

The main thing is that I want the choice of kernels in simple menu form
(with descriptions!), and I've now shown you how to do that.
