This is probably a matter of passing the correct kernel command line
(you want a video= parameter for the screen and load_ramdisk=1
prompt_ramdisk=1 for reading the root floppies).  The command line
goes into the resource fork of the System file on the miBoot floppy,
and you need Mac OS and ResEdit for changing it.
