get the kernel-image-2.4.22-powerpc-chrp-rs6k and do :
dpkg-deb -x kernel-image-2.4.22-powerpc-chrp-rs6k...deb /tmp
on a debian system, or :
ar x kernel-image-2.4.22-powerpc-chrp-rs6k...deb
tar -C /tmp xzvf data.tar.gz
And then get the /tmp/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-powerpc file.
For the .initrd version, you have to build it yourself using the
kernel-build package. Extract the tarball included in this package,
unpack it, go into the created directory and run the build_something
script with the path to the ramdisk as argument, this will create you
the .initrd kernels in the dest subdirectory.
