This works and is quite easy; requiring no rebuild or non-Fedora binaries.

At the tail end of the install, before rebooting, switch to the shell 
console and remount disc1. Then,

# rpm --root /mnt/sysimage --force -i /wherever/is/disc1/Fedora/RPMS/kernel-2.6.9-1.667.i586.rpm

It b0rks a few times coming out of the chroot. But seems to work just fine 
for testing purposes.
