I just looked at how it was done on redhat... I downloaded RH7.1 ISOs to 
take a look at.  The relevant files are posted up at:

So, you point the SE's "boot from CDROM/server" option at the redhat.ins 
file in the above directory, which looks like it lists file names and 
memory addresses to load them at.  From what I see, it looks like the 
three files (kernel, initrd, and parmfile) are basically the same as 
what's used on a tape-based install.
