Comments/Problems:

I get the following error message after the kernel successfully boots:

    RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
    Freeing initrd memory: 1766k freed
    VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
    .....j.....ɽ.........5)Q...ѽ......ɽ.ѽ........-.e

    Kernel panic: No init found.  Try passing init= option to kernel.
     Press L1-A to return to the boot prom

I'm getting this with both the netinst and the businesscard image.  I've downloaded
them using wget and did the md5sum check with success.

Thanks,
Ardo
