Welcome aboard!  Perhaps we can be of some assistance.

This looks like the "Ramdisk too small" problem to me.

What you need to do, if I am correct, is issue 'y' to interact with
the IPL,  and then try setting ramdisk_size=32768 (or some other
appropriately larger value).

A possible successful set of kernel arguments might look like:
 0/vmlinux32 root=/dev/ram initrd=0/ramdisk ramdisk_size=32768 init=/linuxrc
 console=ttyS0 TERM=vt102

Hope this helps some.
