/usr/share/doc but there's hardly +1GB in there.

Perhaps 'Transparent decompression extension' for cd/dvd fs (zisofs) has 
something to offer
In kernel config:
  x   Location:
  x     -> File systems
  x       -> CD-ROM/DVD Filesystems
  x         -> ISO 9660 CDROM file system support (ISO9660_FS [=y])
dunno how/if it'd work for a bootable cd.
