OK, 9 hours later I had a current sarge buisnesscard CD image, with
interesting results. I booted the standard kernel from the cdrom
with `boot cdrom:`, it came up and failed to load the initrd, so it died
on the spot as nothing could be mounted. It was detecting that I was using
a serial console.
Of course, I forgot to capture that session, so I did it again with logging
on in kermit. Then I could not boot anything from the CD, but I can still
boot fine from disk, so it's not a hardware problem. The LED displays F05
after reading something from the CDROM in this case and the machine hangs.

I will try to boot via tftp, the firmware seems to be unable to boot
a specific file from CDROM,
