It boots just fine with piggyback for me, here is what I did in a
2.4.x current CVS tree:

1) used arch/sparc64/defconfig, but turning CONFIG_SMP off
2) make vmlinux
3) make tftpboot.img ROOT_IMG=/home/davem/debian/root.bin

And the booted the resulting arch/sparc64/boot/tftpboot.img on my
SunBlade-1000, and that works.

Maybe there is some local patch in your 2.4.x debian tree which
hoses ramdisks on sparc?  Or do you have some external piggyback
builder you are using?
