hangs after kernel decompression on Ruffian cdrom boot

boot -t iso9660 sr0:kernels/generic.gz root=/dev/sr0
hangs after giving two lines of #####...
No response after that. This is similar to what happened
when the system was booted with the wrong kernel under 5.1
[I'm trying to upgrade. But if the kernel won't boot,
where are things supposed to go?]
Ideally, i'd like to be able to do something like this:
boot sda2:ruffian.gz root=/dev/sr0
And i've tried that, using the old ruffian.gz kernel from
5.1, but it kernel panics trying to mount the cdrom.
I'd prefer a new kernel image to go with the architecture
if at all possible (or just the correct magic to give milo).
My floppy drive is flaky, so creating and using boot
floppies. [It's easier and more reliable to burn CDs...]
is this still a problem using 6.2 ...?
this issue is believed to be fixed in the current release (6.2) ... please
reopen with additional details if still a problem ... Thanks for your report!
