FILO in TWO CPU version LinuxBIOS works well S2885 in LANL and my lab.
So I still suggest that you get another CPU to verify the whole process.

That's interesting.  Too small?  Uncompressed it is:
ls -la :
8192000 2004-07-13 15:37 initrd

I have my ram disk set to 65536.  I made it bigger just to be sure.
Are you saying the initrd and the ramdisk_size must be equal?

If so then this would explain why Yhlu's and my elf's did not work.
I'll try an exact ramdisk_size and initrd.

the few times I've seen the crc error is the initrd is configured too 
small. I still think you might have a config problem here. 
Put some debug prints in the initrd code and try to zoom in better to 
what's going on.
