I have a theory why this might have been broken, but I'm not exactly
sure.  Anyway, I just generated a new image and have done a successful
installation with it.  You can download it from

I think this is no longer needed now.  Can you please test the new
image and let me know if it works without this append parameter?  I
don't have a monitor here so I can only test serial console installs.

No, only ext2/ext3 for now.  In theory, I could put other modules on
the image but even then your root partition would have to be ext2/ext3
so you can boot from it.
