In the meantime I found a way to extract the initrd from the TILO image. But trying an installation with it and the CDROM kernel (which I assume is identical to

prevented a successful installation.

Please search the debian-sparc mailing list regarding the netboot topic,
we have discussed netboot in the past. Maybe this discussion can shed

Thanks for this hint, I believe I read this already in the past, but then forgot about it and hence - maybe again - wrongly assumed that the installer image is a TILO image where it is not.
