Diskless booting on a VIA C3

A friend asked me to test a machine that has a VIA C3 1 Giga Pro processor
which is supposed to be compatible to the x86 family.

Anyway, I tried to boot it diskless using netboot and etherboot and it went
through the process until it ame to the following:

VFS: Mounted root (NFS filesystem).
Freeing unused kernel memory: 92k freed

And then it hanged there.  It seems like it has problem executing INIT.

The same configuration works fine with another machine running an Intel Celeron

Does anyone have any experience with this?
