You have to configure the kernel to be used in ski. It is not possible 
to run a generic kernel under ski since ski only emulates the raw 
processor and lacks firmware and peripherals. The kernel itself has 
emulation for these missing things but you have to use CONFIG_IA64_HP_SIM.

Also there is a separate mailing list at

On the HP site you'll find also howto docs regarding ski.
