You can find a kernel images for the SEAD board here:
ftp://ftp.mips.com/pub/linux/mips/kernel/2.4/images/vmlinux-2.4.3.sead.el-01.01.srec.gz
The sources are here:
ftp://ftp.mips.com/pub/linux/mips/kernel/2.4/src/linux-2.4.3.mips-src-01.01.tar.gz

To build your own ramdisk see Documentation/initrd.txt (in the sources) for 
how-to do it.
Put your ramdisk images in arch/mips/ramdisk/ramdisk.gz and compile the kernel 
(you can
use the .config.sead file for configure your kernel for the SEAD board, just 
copy it to
.config and then do 'make config').
Note that you need a other MIPS linux system to build your ramdisk.

Hope this is useful.
