Combining all bootdisks on to one single disk (booting via usb-stick, installing from network)

Hello Debian-BOOT-gurus,

I'd like to boot from an usb-stick and start the debian-installer in
order to install from network (ftp).

So far I've been able to extract the rescue.bin from the 1.44M disks to
the usb-stick and run syslinux to make it bootable.
Everything is fine until the installer asks me to insert the root-disk.
The stick works like a floppy disk when choosing BOOT-FROM-ZIP.
How can I add the root.bin and maybe the 5 driver-disks to my usb-stick?

It would be an alternative to create a partition table and treat it like
a harddisk.

Thanks for your help,
