Thank you very much! I'm downloading it right now. In fact, we only
have an ISDN link at work :-(.

Try "root=/dev/ram" instead. If this does not work, you might also try
putting "/dev/fd0" as root instead. It should work when you also pass
the "load_ramdisk=1" parameter.

Somehow the RS/6000 does not boot from diskette any more :-(. Since my
last tries with Linux, I have booted the freshly-installed AIX.
Unfortunately, I get no login prompt on the serial console, and the
machine does not seem to have an IP address set :(.
