append="cdrom devfs=mount rw ramdisk_size=8192 rootfstype=ext2"

It gets a bit "further" (doesn't complain about the reiserfs stuff), 

NET4: Unix domain sockets 1.0/SMP for Linux NET4.0.
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 00:00
 Press L1-A to return to the boot prom

Hardware: Sun Ultra 5 (UltraSPARC-IIi 333MHz (sun4u arch)).

Thanks for all the effort put into this...
