try something like :
bootstrap --apus -k apus/linux -r apus/images-1.44/root.bin root=/dev/ram
nobats 60nsram video=pm2fb:mode:1152x864-60,font:SUN12x22,ypan video=amifb:vga
this is with pm2fb enabled, and 60nsram. the nobats line is needed for having
scsi working, and maybe other things too on A1200 systems.
notice : the linux kernel from debian is bad/too old. check the one at
sunsite i will download nextly.

please subscribe to firstname.lastname@example.org, particularly speak with
Nicholai there, he wrote the bootstrap stuff and knows more than me about
warpup/Pup interaction, i myself have not polluted my system with warpup

Add the debug kernel option. the -d/-debug option is for bootstrap only, and
will only make the system wait for messages. Not sure about it.
Please inform us more on what kind of system you have (A1200 or not, ide/scsi
and other suchs, ...)
