It is possible to create install kernel for Linux (actually,
it is not the kernel like NetBSD.  It is a ramdisk for
installation).  However, Linux is required to create such
ramdisk.  Bah.

Following page describes how to create ramdisk for Linux
installation for Xen DomU.

I made ramdisk for SUSE Linux 10.1 using this method.  Then,
I could install SUSE Linux 10.1 using this ramdisk,
extracted kernel and a DVD.iso image file into a Linux disk
image file mounted as a drive (0x300) without any problems.
