This it is already supported in the bzr casper (to be released in few days)
but not encouraged, and also there is not a script to automate this, you just
need to put the /casper directory from the cd into a partition and install a
bootloader into the hd.
Then you should add as kernel param boot=casper.

If you can add an entry to grub you already could do that.
