Just tried to use netboot to install to a PowerBook G4 - guessing I ran
into this bug.
Transfer FILE: initrd.gz method 'load' failed 00000300
ramdisk load failed !
initrd.gz 21-Oct-2006 01:41 6.6M

How about 3? one different set that uses tftp/kexec to boot the
installer, which would be the same as the installed system?
So the installer could still rely on the full kernel/initrd.gz - but
there would be a small one that was just there to get the full one
