Quoting joe at smittys.pointclark.net:

Here is the command line I used as indicated in isolinux.cfg:
hdc1:/GEEXBOX/boot/vmlinuz initrd=hdc1:/GEEXBOX/boot/initrd.gz  
root=/dev/ram0 rw init=linuxrc boot=cdrom installator

does anyone know if maybe the CD-ROM isn't properly setup to emulate a  
floppy boot??
