Works a treat!

You got further than me then :-)

Your disk image solved my problem -- I didn't have the 
"ramdisk_size=15000" parameter. The other problem I have is simply that my 
Sarge initrd.gz expects a kernel with devfs.

The hfs image contains Penguin Colors, Penguin Prefs and Penguin-19. A 
seperate .hqx file for Penguin Prefs would be helpful -- the other hqx 
files are there already.

hmount penguin.hfs
hcopy -b :Penguin\ Prefs Penguin\ Prefs.hqx
