[syslinux] Basic ISOLINUX question

I'm new to ISOLINUX and I've compiled a new Linux distribution of my oppwn
(based on LinuxFromScratch).

Now I want ot create a bootable CD with it - I don't need swap or anything
like that as the bootable CD will simply run a couple of scripts to copy
files onto a machine's hard drive.

What exactly do I need to put in my isolinux.cfg file? Do I *need* to have
a initrd or can I do without? How do I tell ISOLINUX where to find the
root filesystem (or does it figure it out itself)?
