All right, I tried now:

mkelfImage --command-line="earlyprintk=ttyS0,115200,keep 
console=ttyS0,115200n8 root=/srv/nfsexport/rootfs-i486 ip=dhcp rw" 

The behavior is a _little_ bit different.

<many dots snipped>
Unknown firmware type: LinuxBIOS
Firmware type: PCBIOS

But nothing else. What does it mean?

BTW: mkelf-linux is from the mknbi-packet that I'm using for other etherboot
