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.
