You need to put a ramdisk image in your kernel. See mdsetimage(8), and
the infrastructure in src/distrib/macppc/floppies for how to generate
a ramdisk image and put it in the kernel binary.
The easiest is probably to change INSTALL kernel config file to suit your
needs, and regenerate the boot floppy images by a 'make clean; make' in
