AFAIK it already supports this. Just select 'choose boot device' from the 
first menu you see after booting and enter the device for the partition you 
want to boot (for most of mine it's /dev/discs/disc0/part3). It will use the 
kernel from the ISO, but it will boot into the root fs on your hard drive.
