Hrm, do you have a local mirror and have checked out debian-cd? I suspect
that you can then just create your own "flavour" of kernel, and drop it into
the boot-floppies area, then persuade debian-cd/tools/boot/boot-i386 to use
that flavour for one of the CDs, or include it in the ISOLINUX choices...

Or just unpack one of the ISOs to a directory, do a switcheroo on kernel and
drivers.tgz files and remake the ISO, which is hackier but probably less
buy-in :}
