Skipping releases is not supported, you need to first upgrade from woody
(oldstable) to sarge (stable).  In particular, you should have a sarge
silo and kernel before trying to update to unstable.

Woody sparc kernels did not use initrd, sarge and later ones do.  You
need to add the documented initrd paramater to your silo file when
upgrading.  When you install a kernel that needs this, you should get
a warning.
