If I select *all* of the above, I run into a kernel panic (Too many boot
parameters or so).

I see several insmod-messages on ALT+F3.
ALT+F4 says:
There are some 'detected module XY' and 'trying to load module XY'

user.notice hw-detect: Missing modules 'agpgart (SiS 620 Host), ide-mod,
ide-probe-mod, ide-detect, ide-floppy'
user.notice cdrom-detect: Searching for Ubuntu installation media ...

The cd-drive is active for some minutes and stops then. Thats's all.
