OMSA Diags not working on R200 (was PXE boot OMSA Live 6.3)

All --

I'm finding that when I go to select the diagnostic tools from the boot menu
on the 6.3.0 live cd, the proper one (5118A0) isn't working for R200 boxes.
I've tried it out on several different machines... just seems to hang at the
RAMdisk creation stage.

Anyone else seeing this happening?

Thanks,
Shaun
