The new CoLo 1.18 offers a network console on which you might be able
to see what's going on there.  Please do the following:

 - Remove /nfsroot/vmlinux.gz from your server.

 - Download http://www.cyrius.com/debian/cobalt/colo/vmlinux.gz and
   put it in /nfsroot on your server.

 - Download http://www.cyrius.com/debian/cobalt/colo/ncon.c and
   compile it on your server with the following command:
       gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer -O2 -o ncon ncon.c


 - Start your Cobalt and boot via the network.

 - Start ncon on the server (as a normal user).

 - In the menu, there's an option "Network shell".  Choose this.

 - You should now see the output of your Cobalt machine via ncon on
   your server.

 - Try to boot the Linux kernel; this is how to boot:

mount hda1
load /vmlinux
execute root=/dev/hda2

Does that work or does it show some kind of error?
