I can take the kernel I have on my AXe, piggyback the root.bin to it,
and use that to boot (a 2.4.4 kernel, built from vger CVS). The same
image does not work with tilo.

The image I provided with the boot disks does not work with piggyback,
nor tilo.

I am recompiling the same image from pristine vger CVS to match the one
provided in the boot disks. I'll see what I get from this one.

FYI, you can get the system-map for the linux-a.out image by downloading
the image-2.88/rescue.bin and mounting it over loop, if you're willing
to try piggybacking that one with the root.bin.
