	Take a look at stage2.img, which is a cramfs img, where the installer
is (anaconda). You need to modify code inside this img (Python), to make
a thing like: cd1/cool_distro/RPMS/... instead of cd1/RedHat/RPMS/...:)
Also, take a look at bootdisk.img where the >> loader << program is that
before starting says something like "Greetings... RedHat init ...".
Loader source is in C code. Also, pay attention at .discinfo and
..buildstamp files, and do not leave any RedHat logos (or you're busted:)

	This helps?
