That error message is in the linux decompression code and appears when
it can't malloc the necessary memory (32kb), or if it's asked to
decompress to address 0.

I guess that this either means that linux doesn't find usable memory
tables, or that some parts of the linux bootblock data structure are not
filled in correctly.
The latter can happen when the kernel version is too new for the used
linux loader.
