I don't believe that user-mode-linux runs on anything other than i386
machines at the moment.

However, I run Red Hat 7.3 and Red Hat 8.0 in uml on my Debian workstation
(i386) based on instructions at the following url:
and the notes I made for myself when I set it up (which might be totally
 useless or nonsensical ;-) are:

* RedHat 7.3 from http://linuxhacker.ru/uml/
  - stage2.img cramfs is actually an ISO9660 filesystem
  - mount ubd0 on host and copy to an ext3 filesystem.
* RedHat 8.0 from same
  - requires some FS hacking after install to convert ubd0 to a normal
    mountable image.
  - watch out for install "hanging", machine still active, give it a ping.
* Debian 3.0 via rootstrap
