initrd.tns is just a symlink to busyboxconfig-latest.ext2.bz2 :D

I mean, why is it a .tar.gz and not a .tns like initrd ? It would fit in a CX, wouldn't it ?
Nope, the CX has 64MB of RAM, the kernel needs at least 10.
Than you have to load the image into ram, decompress it into ram.
The compressed image occupies already 29 MB, so it won't fit at all.

You can use every ext version.

Then you did something wrong.
If you post your steps and the error message, I can help you better ;-)

I used "sudo tar -xvf  /home/parallels/Desktop/rootfs.tar.bz2 -C /media/rootFS" to put the files on the disk.

bootscript:
kernel linux/zImageX.tns
initrd linux/initrd.tns
cmdline root=/dev/sda
boot

how can i list all storage devices?

Boot normal with initrd and execute "cat /proc/partitions"

So your drive is connected and detected correcly. Can you do "mount /dev/sda /mnt"?

If it works and the files appear in /mnt it should boot fine, too.
