The vmlinux binary must not be uncompressed prior to flashing. Use a standard SNOW romdisk with these. The flashing instructions are not what you are used to - read them carefully, and make sure you don't flash the kernel into the pmon space! Note: the 3.2.0 version in the README is wrong, see the actual boot screen below for what it really is.
Note: It's a good idea to have a working SNOW system before doing this. The procedure for restoring defaults is slightly different here, so you want to avoid having to do it at this point. Warning: You can't use a non-sdram kernel with this sdram PMON, and you can't use this sdram-kernel with a non-sdram PMON.
You'll need a new vrflash if you want to be able to "restore defaults" with this new kernel/pmon .
Warning: your browser will attempt to decompress the kernel. Don't let it. If you have trouble downloading these from here, try my ftp site instead.

Cut the whole thing, but I just wanted to point something out that sort of answers a point where things got messed up. If you want to jump to the kernel by hand in the new PMON/Kernel pair, then what you need to do is:
So if you wanted to restore defaults in the new scenario, what you would do is:
unzip $linux console=ttyS0,115200 init=/sbin/restore_defaults
