The boot2 loader is only for booting when the kernel is on flash (ie
compat flash card plugged in). Are you sure you have flash storage
plugged in with a ufs bootable filesystem on it?

If you get your root filesystem from some other means (nfs) then you can
just write the kernel itself to redboot.
