I had this problem on a SS2 and an Ultra1. On both machines the image is
fetched with tftp, TILO starts, selects the kernel and then it crashes.
IIRC the error message is not always the same, but I don't remember
them... Ultra1 said something about MMU miss.

As I have absolutely no experience with sun and sparc (I got the SS2 a
week ago), I don't know how I can provide more information (besides
writing the full error message down ;) ). So if there is a way to get more
information, please tell me.
