Aha, it's a kernel problem...

I have the same problem with 2.3.51 on DDB Vrc-5074. I retried with some older
kernels, and 2.3.47 failed as well. 2.3.41 allowed me to telnet to the box. I
do have images in between .41 and .47, but they don't boot sufficiently far.

Does it also happen on SGI? If not, perhaps it's an endianness problems? Both
DS and DDB run in little endian.
