The ramdisk.img from the upgrade directory should be fine. I think
some glitches concerning the FTP install have been fixed there.

I believe you need that one as the 'pseudo boot disk', to keep
the installation script happy. It copies the kernel from it.

I guess, it was simply forgotten. Since you're the second one in
a short period of time, I decided to build a generic jensen kernel
on my own -- you can grap it from my home page. It includes support
for the SMC-Ultra (which I use :-)), DE422, and NE1000/2000. I hope
the detection routines will not crash in this combination.
Please mail me either if you were lucky with it or not.
Good luck, Martin
