It was a true harware error on one sector of the disk at the very beginning.
So I left a free space of 1 MB before sda1,sized sda1 at 7 MB, dd 
vmlinuZ-2.6.8-powerpc on it and it boots.
Thanks for your help.

But I realized one thing while trying to isolate the problem: Changing 
size/place of partitions with cfdisk needs a reboot for beeing ackowledged by 
the kernel.....I'll see if there is already a bug report for that.
