Subjectsyslinux and 2.4.0 initrd size problems

I am having trouble getting a 2.4 vmlinuz (bzImage) and initrd
image onto a 1.44 floppy with all the new stuff. Even a stipped
down kernel compiled under 2.4 is @ 600K compressed, and I need
about 800K for the initrd image. I noticed that syslinux
has some comments about not allowing initrd to span media.

I there something more current that does or will allow me to
load the inittrd off a CD-ROM device (with vmlinuz and syslinux
on the floppy). I know how to do this with GRUB (Grand
Unified Boot Loader), but I want to use syslinux if possible.
