That is strange, works on my Amiga and Mac, but on the Atari I got a similar
message an no clue for what could be wrong. Maybe there is some truth in the
yaird needs a running 2.6 kernel to create the initrd? But IIRC it worked on
the Mac. Anyhow, all drivers you need are built in (SCSI, IDE), optional
drivers (ethernet) can be loaded as module from the filesystem. I should
switch off the initrd building, does not work (yet) for us anyhow.

As Ingo said, uncompress it, this is a "feature" of amiboot and/or linux2.6.
gunzip -cd /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1-amiga > /amiga/vmlinux-2.6.15-1-amiga
from Linux. Adjust the output file to your needs, obviously.
