The standard solution is to have your boot partition (sdd1) mounted as
/boot in your Linux system, and then your kernel and initramfs files are
automatically put (and updated) on the right partition.  Then you can
refer to them as /vmlinuz and /initramfs from the Syslinux config (where
sdd1 is "mounted" at /).
