Hmm, this works for me; I use "append initrd=rootfs.ext2.gz
ramdisk_size=65536 root=/dev/ram0". The panic message suggests that the
kernel doesn't get the information on what device to use as root
filesystem. What does the kernel say in the line starting with "Kernel
command line:"?

No. This probably means that the TFTP client of your BIOS does not
support TFTP options used by the server. I also receive such messages,
and everything works fine.

With kind regards,
