It seem that the kernel doen't find your root
partition like /dev/sda1 or /dev/sdb2. Check your
nvram settting about the booting partition.
setenv OSLoadPartition /dev/sda(x) /* where x is the
linux partition */
setenv SystemPartition scsi(0)disk(y)partition(z) /*
where y is the disk on which you have your system root
1 is sda and 2 is sdb, z is the SGI irix style
partition name when you prepared your disk for
installation... 1 or 2 or 3, up to 7 don't give 8 or
10 which are volhdr and volume partition */
For the Cdrom, i don't know, but ftp is definitly the
way to install....
Good luck !
ps.: By the way, you are not stupid...you are
learning...out of the easy "intel way" and out there,
nothing is the same. Welcome in the real world Neo...
