How long did you wait? Is your kernel using a ramdisk for booting?
Your 030 might need a while for unpacking the ramdisk image, while the
heartbeat LED will blink right after loading the kernel itself. 

What I found useful while dealing with headless machines (on mips (SGI
Indigo2) and sparc (broken graphics)) is the use of a nullmodem cable
(serial console). Even without a serial console you might get more output by
using debug=mem and the dmesg program afterwards under AmigaOS.
