  Yes, I did, but I don't have a DHCP environment so it kept searching at
the DHCP phase.

  This problem is odd.  I can boot my elf fine with etherboot, but not with
filo.  I can boot
my kernel fine with filo, but not the initrd.  I can even boot your kernel
of the ram.elf you
sent me, but when it hits the initrd it fails with the same error as mine.

  I suspect either my filo is not configured like yours or that there is a
problem loading a
mulitpart elf (kernel & initrd in filo).  I'm confused as to why filo didn't
just use the etherboot
portion of elf_load.  It could be you were on the, "bleeding" edge? ;)  

  Can you tell me how much memory you have in your working system?  I have
one cpu and 512meg memory.  Curious if loading it high & it runs out of
memory or
something like that.
