Debian installation on a Alpha Station 400

   Iam trynig to install Debian Linux (3.1) on a Alpha Station 400
   from a CD. I wrote the following command in SRM prompt:

   boot dka300 -flag 0

   The system stops with aboot prompt. Then I wrote the value 0.
   Then it started booting and stops with the following message on the

   aboot: Starting kernel boot/vmlinuz with argument ramdisk_size=16384
root=/dev/ram devs=mount,dall

   Afterwards nothing happens. I tested the cdrom with Tru64 CD and the
   drive is good.

   Any help is appreciated.
