Well I think it's a framebuffer problem... I am using the sarge nightly
build install cdrom (~250Meg). I use bootx to start the kernel with
the ramdisk and I get as far as seeing the output listed below.

After that there is some activity at the top of the screen. A flashing
cursor and what looks like text flashing past. This makes me believe
that the kernel is booting but the framebuffer is somehow now
showing it.

Is there a kernel boot parameter I can use to somehow rectify this

Have you tried video=ofonly?

Yeah, it has no effect :(
