Sorry, I just realized there would have been a much easier way: you
could have loaded the kernel via the net but told it to boot from
disk (i.e. by editing /nfsroot/default.colo and by adding a
root=/dev/hdaX parameter).

Yes, that would be great.  Just download the kernel package and
install it with dpkg:

wget http://people.debian.org/~tbm/mips/kernel/r10906/linux-image-2.6.25-rc6-r5k-cobalt_2.6.25~rc6-1~experimental.1_mipsel.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.25-rc6-r5k-cobalt_2.6.25~rc6-1~experimental.1_mipsel.deb
sudo reboot
