It is suspected that either your paths are off or you need to use another "root=/dev/ram".
Maybe "root=/dev/ram0" ?

Seems something similar to this over here:
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=7554.0

Maybe you need to tell it the root first, then tell it what img to use. Instead of
Code: [Select]
loadlin stata initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/ram rwuse
Code: [Select]
loadlin sata root=/dev/ram rw initrd=initrd.img

Can you not boot from a VL install CD?
