Steps to reproduce:
1. install kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc
2. run mkvmlinuz with "do_initrd = Yes" in kernel-img.cnf
3. boot the resulting vmlinuz-2.6.8-powerpc on PReP

Setting PCI interrupts for a "IBM 7248, PowerSeries 830/850 (Carolina)"
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
 <0>Rebooting in 180

Strange.  I also have a Carolina (a 43P-100, to be precise), and it
works very well with the exact same setup.  Can you try a non-initrd
kernel built from Debian sources?

Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
[no disks probed]
VFS: Cannot open root device "<NULL>" or unknown-block(3,3)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,3)
 <0>Rebooting in 180 seconds..

It's missing some drivers that I assume would be present on the initrd...
