I have tried to unzip and mount the initrd.img file under the isolinux directory, and then installing the ks.cfg file under the tmp directory of the initrd.img image.

Two things you must do:
1. Put the ks file somewhere. It can be on the media, it can be on a
separat floppy, it can be on a webserver some place.

2. Use "ks=" on the append line to specify where it is.

If you RTFM, you will find the details.
