 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 -m http /kernel
    load -r -v -b 0x01000000 -h -m http /initrd

 That's much faster too.
