Re: Debian-Installer beta 4 released for 9 architectures

I tried this out by myself, and wasn't successful either.

Source  : D-I beta 4, .../installer-arm/current/images/riscpc/cdrom/
Kernel  : 2.4.25-riscpc
Initrd  : initrd.gz
Hardware: Risc PC
           StrongARM-110 rev.T
           128MB RAM (2 SIMM)
           2MB VRAM
           i-cubed Etherlan 600

I started the kernel via linloader:

linloader <kernel> initrd=<initrd.gz> root=/dev/ram

It said (after the usual stuff):

Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 1:00

How are the kernel and the initrd to be used? What am I doing wrong? Does the 
kernel maybe lack initrd support?
