Getting kernels to boot other kernels?

I recall reading a white paper about Linuxbios and patches so that the kernel
can boot other kernels? Does anyone know where this code is? I've poked
around with no luck.
For our application, I'd like to place a minimal kernel into the FLASH with
the BIOS. That kernel would either use IP or IDE to read in the 'real'
I considered chaining into Etherboot, but I need to boot from IDE drives in
addition to Ethernet. The Etherboot CAN_BOOT_DISK flag seems to require IDE
read funtionality in the BIOS (a no-no with linuxbios?).
Thanks for any advice. I've only been futzing with linuxbios since last
Friday so I'm still new at this.
