No, that's wishful thinking.  See choose_medium.c:

  char kernel_image_path[PATH_MAX+1] = "images-1.44/rescue.bin";

It really is not going to be all that hard to fix this for Woody --
the logic is simple.  If we're installing the kernel from floppies,
use the rescue disk; otherwise, use the vmlinuz file (or whatever)
appropriate for your subarch or flavor.
