Unfortunately there is no inird support in the Alpha kernels, and
As a replacement for the debian CD if you specify
both "root=<cdrom-device>" and "load_ramdisk=1", the Debian-supplied
kernels will use some info in the boot headers of the iso image to
load in a ramdisk the root image which is on the CD.
