I'm not sure how to apply one of those kernel rpms to the iso image I have,
but
I'd love to learn. Any pointers?

Yes, but it needs an already running system. There's an 'install-initrd'
package that allows you to regenerate the initrd to match the kernel package
you want to use. Then you can replace the kernel and initrd on the install
media with it and re-burn it.

It will probably be easier to not bother with the live cd for this stage of
testing. You're not getting far enough into the boot cycle for it to matter.

Instead, download the internet install iso. It's a lot smaller and it's easier
to drop in the replacement kernel and initrd and remake the iso than it is to
rebuild the entire live cd with a new kernel. Also I only know how to do the
first part. :)
