Well, I guess there are not too many volunteers for this task. :-)

See below.

Yes, see below as well.

So, this is so far the complete protocol of my tests:

1.) Tried to start from cd rom (bootstra.prg)
Output: Unable to get kernel image vmlinux

Copied everything to harddisc, renamed bootstra.prg to bootstra.tos


-s -d -k c:\linux\vmlinuz -r c:\linux\initrd.gz root=/dev/ram
video=atafb:vga16 console=tty load_ramdisk=1 fb=false

2.) Booted from TOS, no additinal programs loaded, Resolution 16
Colours, 640x480

Bootstra.prg started:

Linux/68k Atari Bootstrap version 6.0snapshot Dec 13 2004

Type a key to continue the Linux boot...

[This should be corrected as well because you have to press RETURN all
the other keys do not work]

Booting Linux...

Floppy and Harddisk LED start to flash
Screens gets distorted
After a while the screen changes to a readable console output (black
screen, white letters)
[but unfortunately this is too much and too fast to type in]

Then the screen gets blue, white input mask, black letters and you have
to chose language

After a while screen gets blue again

No common CD-ROM drive was detected
Load CD-ROM drivers from removable media?
Then keyboard input is impossible
Pushed Reset button

3.) Booted again, now with a cd-rom media (not a burnt one) inserted but
obviously not a Linux iso

Same output like above until:

Detecting hardware to find CD-ROM drives
Detecting hardware, please wait...
After a while screen gets blue again
Then screen changed to red:

[!!] Detect and mount CD-ROM
Incorrect CD-ROM detected

Please insert a suitable CD to continue with the Installation


[Pressed RETURN]

[!!] Detect and mount CD-ROM

An installation step failed. You can try to run the failing item again
from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step
is: Detect and mount CD-ROM
