Ramdisk: Since we do not have VIO yet you will have to use a ramdisk fro your rootf, one is available from this link <http:// wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenPPC/Build? action=AttachFile&do=get&target=ramdisk.image.gz>.

Err, my tiny does not need any disk or vio. I am not starting linux. Do I still need a ramdisk (and if so what for?).

No, this is simply a rootfs that a Linux domain can use until we get VIO working.
so just comment it out, or here is a diff:
