I also had that problem recently when trying to boot a zImage.initrd from a
usb-disk. Unfortunately I don't know the exact reason yet.

A zImage.initrd works fine when you load it from a tftp server. So I assume
it will work if you put your zImage.initrd on a tftp server and boot it from
there with "boot net".

Another workaround would be to put yaboot on your PReP partition and supply
both, the path to initrd and to the kernel image in your yaboot.conf.

Assuming that your PReP partition is /dev/sda1:

mkofboot -b /dev/sda1 -i /bin/yaboot -C /etc/yaboot.conf --filesystem raw
--force -v
