I suggest you use screen as your terminal and "sb" (from lrzsz) to send
the initrd with xmodem or ymodem. e.g.:
load -v -m ymodem -b 0xsomeaddress -r
from screen type ^A and « : » then:
exec !!.| sb --ymodem /some/file
Another good option with the Thecus (you have a Thecus, right?) is
load -r -v -b 0x01d00000 -h 192.168.0.12 -m http /kernel
load -r -v -b 0x01000000 -h 192.168.0.12 -m http /initrd
That's much faster too.
