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.
