Install trouble on Alpha 300xl

I'm having trouble installing Debian GNU/Linux on my Alpha 300xl.

I loaded the following two files onto a FAT formatted floppy:
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/Debian2.2r5/main/disks-alpha/current/MILO/xlt (renamed to milo)

When I boot, the following is displayed on the console:

Linux Loader V1.5

Copyright(c) 1994,1995 Digital Equipment Corporation

System Partition is OSLOADPARTION=scsi(0)disk(0)partition(1)
Load ilke Name is OSLOADFILENAME=\
Load Path is multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)\milo
Loading file at 0x8008000 ...

Getting firmware parameters...

...Memory Size is 0x2000000 bytes

Setting up arguments for Milo @ 0x801FFC00

Setting up memory size for Milo @ 0x801FFE00

Setting up memory size for Milo @ 0x801FFF00

Swapping to PALcode at 0x80000 ...

at this point the system hangs.

Any ideas?
