That is the purpose of chain loading.
chainloading is the better solution *iff* your bootloader and the bios
support it in the particular case.
for usb sticks, it mostly depends on how broken the bios is. most of the
early machines that had usb do not know about the usb ports unless the
operating system has loaded specific drivers for it; so the bootloader
can't access it and chainload will not work.
as a generic solution that should work on all machines with crappy
bioses, chainloading is not a good solution, but loading both the kernel
and initrd from the boot medium (cd) is.
