Newbie: Indy won't boot


my indy just won't boot a linux kernel. I tried to boot off efs and
saw just one line like this:
number+number+number entry: foo
I said:
sash: boot -f dksc(0,2,0)vmlinux-indy

just like on a booting bsd. That's all. My config:

indy 3% hinv
Iris Audio Processor: version A2 revision 4.1.0

        MC revision C, xmap9 revision A, cmap revision C, bt445
revision D
        Display 1280x1024 @ 76Hz, monitor id 1

Is my framebuffer not supported? At the moment i have no serial cable
to give the serial console a try.
If it is not supported does the kernel set up the network interface
using netaddr so that i could check if it is ping'able?

Another question: do i need to set up rarp on my server box when i
want to boot off the net? I see a bootp request and a response (Etherreal).
netaddr is unset on the indy and i did a "echo 1 >
/proc/sys/net/....." (am using 2.4.0-test10 on the pc)
tftp'ing is possible between my indy and the server (i got the kernel
images this way onto the efs on the indy). But no kernel is send over
the net :-(
