Tried to connect serial port. Didn't work. However, it *did* work
using the JumpStart disk.

The jumpstart disk (using aboot 0.7) worked. I just have to come up
with a new gentoo installation strategy. It's geared toward RedHat,
SUSE, Debian, etc.
but looks like the problem is (at least partially) with 2004.3. I'll
poke around the mirrors for an 1.4rc1-test4.
