The newest one from the FTP site is:
-rw-r--r--   1 grundler cvsusers  1149294 May  6 00:34 lifimage_32_serial_20010505.gz

Which version of the palinux-cd?

One would have to extract the System.map from the vmlinux in this lifimage
in order to make any sense of the console log.

Looks like a null ptr derefence. Trying a newer 32-bit kernel/lifimage
would be a first step.  I've put a newer files on puffin.external.hp.com
ftp site (pub/parisc/binaries/lifimages):
-rw-r--r--   1 grundler cvsusers  1412239 Jul 18 20:14 lifimage_32_serial_20010717.gz
-rw-r--r--   1 grundler cvsusers   549881 Jul 18 20:16 System.map_serial_20010717

Can't promise they will work better though...
