I tried a lot. Bot none of the boot params I tried worked. I've also tried the 
Image from today, 2004-06-14.

Perhaps the initrd wasn't loaded to ram? Or the initrd wasn't mapped 

On i386 there is a special debian initrd patch to the kernel, without this 
patch, on i386 you can't boot a initrd kernel and you have the same error 
message. Perhaps this has something todo with it?
