That should have worked.
Please show your work about gunzipping and subsequent mount attempts.

I think it depends on the initrd format. For Dapper Drake, it is a gzipped cpio archive. So as Stephen suggested he can do:
gzip -dc /media/cdrecorder/casper/powerpc/initrd.gz | cpio -x
Then you can play with the expanded version, and cpio it back together to make a new disc.
