Don't know about the E30 or the B50, but I have an E20 here. Do you
have a model with a graphics card? If not, you have to explicitly tell
the kernel to use a serial console. The command line goes like this:

  root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1 console=ttyS0,9600

If you want, I have a 2.4.17 kernel with Ramdisk and SCSI support.
However, it does not fully boot for me: The scsi driver (no matter
which one I choose) hangs at startup :-(. Without scsi, I can start
the installer, but its useless without disk access :-(.
