This is a very well known issue. amiboot-5.6 cannot boot compressed
kernel images larger than a certain size. While amiboot-6.0 is supposed
to fix that, it just always crashes for me.

Thus, the easiest solution is to simply decompress the kernel image
manually using gzip and boot the uncompressed image using amiboot-5.6
which works fine.

Just rename vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amiga to vmlinux-3.2.0-4-amiga.gz, then
gunzip vmlinux-3.2.0-4-amiga.gz and finally boot with:

 'amiboot-5.6 -d -k vmlinux-3.2.0-4-amiga root=/dev/sda3 fb=false'
