An automated tool for that would be The Real Good Idea of the year ;)
I've been wanting to do that for monthes and never took the time (I'm
still typing blindly on my French keyboard with an US keymap ;)

Would it be possible to add an option to miBoot (oldworld machines with
floppy) so that it loads the kernel from the floppy, and then requests
another floppy for the ramdisk ?
This would be less useful to add to yaboot since all newworld machines
are floppy-less. (It's possible that the latest ones can boot from a USB
floppy however).
