I looked at how it is done. Not the ideal way for us.

 - It is the same syslinux, extended with the method to read iso9660

 - no menus, as far as I can see
 - hard to manage all kernels and all different profiles with this
 - another method of "booting" floppy images on the disk (which would be
   nice) is marked as buggy on most BIOSes
