OK - I've been looking into Debian a bit. I've tried images for Sarge, Etch and Sid. In all three cases I had to unpack kernel and initrd upfront.

The Sarge image is based on the 2.4 kernel. Here at least the init process is kicked off. You can drop to a shell by adding "init=/bin/sh" to the kernel command line (in the amiboot call). In the shell I can't type anything, however. The output about the umount that other users have seen occurs when the init process is trying to unmount the /proc filesystem. I've placed a call to /bin/sh in the init script right before that line to take a look around but as soon as I try to type anything in this shell I get a segfault.

The two other 2.6 based images don't even get to the point where the kernel is handing over control to the init process. The last message is that the RTC cannot be found but I don't think that this is the problem, since the RTC should be irrelevant here.
