Debian/sarge installer on an AlphaStation 600 5/333


When I try to boot the Debian/sarge installer from a CD-ROM on an
AlphaStation 5, I get only the following messages and then the systems
appears to hang (no console output, no cd-rom activity):

 >>> boot dka600 -fl 0
 aboot: Linux/Alpha SRM bootloader version 0.9b
 aboot: no disklabel found.
 iso: Max size:78331   Log zone size:2048

 aboot: starting kernel boot/vmlinuz with arguments ramdisk_size=16384  root=/dev/ram devfs=mount,dall

The Debian/potato installer boots fine from CD-ROM, however, so it
looks to me like a kernel problem.  Is the sarge installer supposed to
work on such an old system?
