ok i did that, placed the root.bin file in the root of the 'Macintosh HD'
and the boot parameters i gave in bootx were :

/dev/hda6 (that in the 'root device'  field in bootx)


initrd=/root.bin (this in the 'more kernel arguments' field)

and then boot it

but it exits with this

Invalid session number or type of track
attempt to access beyond end of device
03:06: rw=0, want=33, limit=5
dev 03:06 blksize=1024 blocknr=32 sector=64 size=1024 count=1
isofs_read_super: bread failed, dev=03:06, iso_blknum=16, block=32
set blocksize: b_count 1, dev ide0(3,6), block 1, from c0067624
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:06
Rebooting in 180 seconds...  (yes i typed that over in less than 180 seconds

oh one more question, when i am able to boot into the windows installer, ...
can i safely delete the partitions i have now (and thus delete macos and
bootx), i mean, does the installation of the bootloader (i think it is quik
or miboot) in the installer works ok  ?
