You're basically there, but it didn't manage to find the GUI which is in the "cde" directory on a real CD device.

As an alternative you should be able to download and install that with these commands...

tce-load -wi Xprogs Xvesa aterm flwm_topside wbar
startx

But until you add "tce=sda1" or similar option for a persistent store they probably won't survive a reboot.
