Thanks for the tip. The ramdisk.gz image did the trick. I got all the way
through the install but I could boot into my new Linux system.

Near what I think is the end of the boot process I got the following error

mount -t ufs -o ufstype=sun/sunx86/44bsd/old/nextstep/openstep...

Wrong ufstype may corrupt your filesystem default is ufstype=old
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 03: 0c

Can anyone shed some light on this problem? I feel I'm almost there.

Thanks for the help.
