Linux Install booter problems

 Dear Debian:
I am having troubles starting the Penguin-18 bootstrap installer on my PowerBook 520. I start the Penguin booter, set the setting to point to the 'linux' kernel and 'root.bin' ram disk file, set 'root=/dev/ram' in the command line, save these settings as defaults, choose 'Boot Now', and it stops on a white screen with black lettering (monochrome screen) saying:

I've also attached several logs I made while trying to get the program up and running. I copied into some of these files the specs to my machine that are under the "Hardware" menu of the Penguin program (Show Machine Profile, Show SCSI Info, Show Device Mappings).

This is what I know. I don't know if I need to try some additional command line args prior to selecting "Boot Now", or if I need a different kernel, etc. Please look things over and get back to me at this email address.

 Thanks.  John
