Next update - Delo 0.5 up and running 

I added MS-Dos Partition support that Delo can load from and partition
you select - Syntax for me is

boot 3/rz0 5/boot/vmlinux root=/dev/sda5 console=ttyS2

As you might guess - 5 is the partition number as in /dev/sda5. Currently
i do have the problem that the machine locks hard as soon as the kernel
spits out the Kernel Command Line and i am unsure if this is Kernel or
Bootloader related.
