MILO on Alpha Station 400 won't work.

I'm trying to install Linux on an AS400. I have done everything
according to the MILO-howto. I suspect that I haven't found the right
MILO image. When I try to boot with the XL or XL-Avanti
image it starts to load, but after a while the screen gets messed up and it
I have now tried the test-images XLT and xlt. It still hangs, but the screen
doesnt screw up. Here is what it says after starting LinuxLoader 1.3 :
some stuff about osloader locations etc
Opening file multi(0)disk(0)fdisk(0)\milo
Loading file at 0x80000000
Getting firmwareparameters ...
... Memory size is 0x3000000 bytes
Setting up arguments for Milo @ 0x801FFC00
Setting up memory size for Milo @ 0x801FFE00
swapping to PALcode at 0x0 ...

Then nothing else happens. Do I have the wrong MILO image or could
it be a hardware problem ?
I boot from the ARC-console. I just read Mark Woolfsons posting, and it
seems to be a similar problem.
