Oh, I'm sorry. 0.01 way typo. I used 0.03.

It simply says "Command not found" though I could execute
other binaries like ls or whatever came with root-be-0.03.tar.gz.

Oh, I should write more about where I am now.
I booted linux kernel via tftp, made ext2 filesystem on indy's
drive, and I extracted root-be-0.03 by hand (because of
installer's problem), and installed RPM stuffs.

Great! that's what I want to know!!
Maybe I haven't extracted that (or forgot to get).
Thank you very much. I'll try that.
