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
some light onto your questions:
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.
