I doubt the kernel on those images will work on C3700.
We didn't have access to the HW and several problems have been
fixed since then.

I can think of two choices:
1) grab a newer kernel from http://cvs.parsc-linux.org/downloads/
   and build your own lifimage. Set up dhcp/tftp so the lif image
   can be netbooted and point at the CD-image as root=/dev/cdrom.
   Lots of grungy details to make this work but the basics are
   documented on the parisc-linux.org website.

2) Grab the Debian-Installer from

   and give it a try. Some things may not work right but
   I'm pretty sure the kernel it uses will boot on c3700.
