how to make custom install boot disk?

I have the need for a custom boot disk for installing Slackware 8.1, as the kernel that comes with it has a well known bug that prevents the console from displaying correctly(read: at all) on VIA chipsets with integrated S3 Savage 3D video chipsets.

In the past I could mount the bare.i disk image and replace vmlinuz with a custom one. Slackware 8.1 however seems to have changed everything, and I cannot mount it at all.

Could someone offer pointers as to how I can put my custom kernel in the bare.i or scsi.s bootdisk?

I tried using slackware 8.0 bare.i as a template with my custom kernel, but it froze up after loading ramdisk......
