Thanks for that! Unfortunately i'm still not able to boot :-(
I am able to boot your Debian_Woody filesystem, so i tried this:

[root] mount Debian_Woody /mnt/ -o loop
[user] linux rootflags=/mnt/ rootfstype=hostfs rw

Now i get the same error:

| VFS: Mounted root (hostfs filesystem).
| Warning: unable to open an initial console.

This is the last output, no login (with con=xterm, another xterm pops up, but 
same result: no login)
