How to kickstart from floppy?

I am trying to get the Breezy install to see a ks.cfg (kickstart config) 
on a floppy.  I have read the documentation on the wiki, and the RedHat 
documentation that comes with system-config-kickstart  On RedHat systems 
I have done this before by creating bootable disk using syslinux and 
putting the linuz kernel and initrd.gz from the install on the disk, but 
ubuntu doesn't seem to have a small footprint install.  Anyone have some 
knowledge in this area? The docs seems to say that just saying ks=path 
to ks.cfg at the prompt will work and that it will work for a floppy but 
so far every thing I've tried has failed.
thanks Tim Jackson
