It still could be the known problem with older PROMs that Joshua 
described. The SILO configuration file should also be below 1GB.

What happens if you do `cat /etc/silo.conf` from the SILO prompt,
or when you try the following from that prompt:

boot: 1/vmlinuz-2.2.17-cdm

If this boots, you might want to copy /etc/silo.conf to /boot,
and create a symbolic link from /etc to /boot/silo.conf so that
your system can find it.
