I think this is a divide by zero error when it tries to jump into the
etherboot payload. Etherboot has a bug which I've mentioned before. It
tries to use some timer machinery before it has been initialized.
Edit src/timer.c of etherboot, in the function currticks you want:
diff -Nur etherboot-5.0.10/src/timer.c etherboot-5.0.10-new/src/timer.c
--- etherboot-5.0.10/src/timer.c	Sat Mar 22 11:52:25 2003
+++ etherboot-5.0.10-new/src/timer.c	Wed Jul 16 09:45:46 2003

 	unsigned long clocks_high, clocks_low;
 	unsigned long currticks;
 	/* Read the Time Stamp Counter */
 	rdtsc(clocks_low, clocks_high);

BTW if this fixed your problem I'm a miracle worker.
