Obviously, since I talked about what was on the disk, I was doing that.

The problems are that there are several vmlinuz and several initrd.img on
the CD.  I've even mounted the cd9660 filesystem and wandered around
reading the files.  I have tried the kernel and initrd in /isolinux and in
/live ... they fail to boot with something about "/sbin/init missing" while
iniitrd is still mounted.

I gather that some set of kernel boot options is what I'm missing, but I
haven't been able to find those yet.
