Boot the seperate "vmlinuz" (it's vmlinux - don't ask) and
ramdisk.image.gz eg from:
with a yaboot.conf like:
init-message = "\nWelcome to the installer ppc testing environment!\nHit
<TAB> for boot options.\n\n"
This should work. There are some patches I have to review and test to
improve our malloc which should allow larger images, and zImage support
