Hitting ENTER at the SILO prompt, the system crashes soon after booting the kernel:

"Trying to move old root t0 /initrd ... okay
 mounted devfs on /dev
 attempt to access beyond end of device
 01:00: rw=0, want=8278, limit=8192"
last line repeated several times with slightly varying numbers
"Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
 Press L1-a to return to the boot prom"

I have put a screen shot at http://www.medvillage.de/debian/sparc.jpg

looks like initrd is slightly too big?
