Whilst that does the job, it also does a whole lot more, building a full
set of install CDs. I was looking for something a bit simpler, just
enhancing the boot.iso to incorporate a tweaked/different kernel but
leaving the main set of install CDs unchanged.
Maybe that's not a viable option though, as the original unmodified
kernel package would get installed and would presumably leave an
unbootable system, so a modified rescue CD would be needed too in order
to install the updated kernel on the target system post-installation.
