Well, I'm booting off the network so I don't use boot.iso. But I use
the same vmlinuz and initrd.img as the CD does.

That sounds cool but I don't see it using http. The installer requests
disc1/images/minstg2.img and that's what kicks things off. If I point
it to a place with the ISOs it still requests the .img and complains
when it gets the 404. I wonder what I'm missing?
