I've seen this on one of my ultra 5's before they both decieded to die.
I think it's a reoccurance of the silo initrd loading bug (or something
related) that can be worked around by changing the memory configuration.

What memory configuration do you have?  What CPU speed?  If 4 sticks,
try removing 2.  If 2, try moving to the other pair of slots.  (Mine
had 4x32M, d-i worked with 2x32M in slots closest to disk.  After
install the system booted fine with all 4 sticks.)

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
