Well, I've found out the monolithic target has been removed from Ubuntu 
but the netboot target remains. As I don't want to waste a lot of media, 
I figured I'd run my thoughts by and see if any of them are obviously 
wrong. I need to create an image to install Ubuntu from.

1) I modify the package lists of the netboot installer to include the 
scsi modules, and then boot/burn the mini.iso that is produced.

2) I use the isolinux initrd and somehow modify the current preview
install CD. My thinking is that I might be able to replace the current
isolinux with it?

I would prefer #1 simply so that I could release a small network install 
image that other people using newer Dell servers could use.
