This looks like the "Ramdisk too small" problem to me.
What you need to do, if I am correct, is issue 'y' to interact with
the IPL, and then try setting ramdisk_size=32768 (or some other
appropriately larger value).
A possible successful set of kernel arguments might look like:
0/vmlinux32 root=/dev/ram initrd=0/ramdisk ramdisk_size=32768 init=/linuxrc
Hope this helps some.
