You need to make a new CD:
   copy contents of cd to new directory
   edit the isolinux/isolinux.cfg and add " ks=floppy" on the end of
the first "append" line
   create new CD from your new copy:
     mkisofs -o new.iso \
       -b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
       -c isolinux/boot.cat \
       -no-emul-boot \
       -boot-load-size 4 \
       -boot-info-table \
