As far as I understand your description, this is correct !
You see about file lines, describing, where the modules
(kernel, ramdisk image, etc) is loaded. And now you must be
patient. In former Linux Releases I had to wait up to half or
full minute to get up. The current kernel on the 0.9.1 is
faster and takes 5-10 seconds (depending on the machine ...)

Wait for a longer time...

By the way. You wrote "series 700". Is this a 9000/720 with
50Mhz or a 730 with 66Mhz (my 720 has the model number A1094).
For those "old" machine you might need a patch in the kernel
to handle an old method of page fault, etc.., handling.
A line must be added then in the `arch/parisc/kernel/trap.c'.
This is true for the old PA7000 CPUs.

If your are intersted I will give you more hints to this point.

With friendly regards
