where can i find info on what the kernel is doing at each stage of the
boot process for a 'install' kernel like this so i can try to debug this
without buggin you guys for each problem?

in the mean time, this is with Thomas' kernel.. I got farther along

Red Hat install init version 1.1 starting
mounting /proc filesystem... done
opening /proc/cmdline... done
checking command line arguments... done
checking for NFS root filesystem...yes
mke2fs 1.10, 24-Apr-97 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
/dev/ram: Operation not supported by device while setting up superblock
creating 100k of ramdisk space... done
mounting /tmp from ramdisk... failed.

I can't recover from this.
