Just to confirm that: yes you can mount the cdrom and chroot into it safely. 
The only thing that won't be the same as actually booting the CD is that you 
run a different kernel using Tom's root disks. But that's not a big deal, as 
long as that kernel is at least 2.2.something you'll be just fine.
