-to-pxeboot appends gziped cpio archive with ISO file to the original
initrd cpio archive, so if you know original initrd size, you could
extract appendix using e.g. dd. In general case, tool is needed to
search for the end-of-cpio-archive marker ("TRAILER!!!") which is what
attached Richard's initrdsplitter.c is doing, Read comments for usage.
As Alan says.
Even better is not to get into this situation, ie. save the ISO before
running livecd-iso-to-pxeboot ...
