Problem installing debian: netinst hangs at "Loading ramdisk..." on an IBM 7028-6C1


I'm trying to install Debian stable on a IBM Pseries 610 using the netinst Cdrom. After some fiddling in the SMS I end up with a yaboot prompt. No matter what I try (tried expert64, install and also expert64 with the video=ofonly option) but I get nothing more than:

boot: expert64
Please wait, loading kernel...
   Elf64 kernel loaded...
Loading ramdisk...

What am I doing wrong? Does Debian support my system? To what console is Debian and kernel sending its output?
