I just tried this. You can mount the rescue CD image, copy everything in
the isolinux directory to the root of a FAT formatted flash drive,
rename isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg and install syslinux. It'll boot up,
but I wasn't able to figure out how to make it find the stage2.img on
the flash drive. It'll ask you where the install CDs are, and selecting
the flash drive does nothing.
