If you're using a version of CD1, then look for a /isolinux directory. If
that exists, you should be able to just configure isolinux to look at a
different kernel. If you're not using an isolinux CD, then you need to pass
the rescue image to boot with to mkisofs (you need to specify various
options to mkisofs in any event, look for "boot" in the manpage: isolinux
needs -no-emul-boot, install syslinux and read the docs)
