[syslinux] Syslinux & DiskonChip 2000 boo error.

Good afternoon.

I am trying to make a 32M DiskonChip2000 boot Linux (kernel version 2.2.20)
but I'm having difficulty.

It begins fine, loading most of the kernel, but halts immediately after the
"Freeing unused kernel memory: 52K freed." step.  The implication seems to
be that my ramdisk is not being mounted/executed properly.

My syslinux.cfg file is as follows:

append initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=8192 boot=/dev/msys/fla1

I'd appreciate any assistance you could give me on the matter.
