It seems like you have NO kernel on the Amiga side installed. The kernel must 
be loaded BEFORE the boot begins.

You'll have to download a kernel (or use the one given on debian CDs) and put 
it somewhere on the Amiga partition (best is the same directory where you 
keep amiboot).

The kernel has to be a binary image for Amiga, also gzipped is ok, but NOT the 
source archive.

You can find some kernels here:
