Roman, et al, since you, and maybe others seem to be incredibly hot to
trot on my desktop booting issue, the files you requested are at

<http://www.fmp.com/~fmouse/vishnu/>

/etc/fstab (vishnu_fstab.txt) is configured as per the _working_ kernel
on the box, which is 2.6.21-gentoo-r1.  When booting from a more recent
kernel, the 1st three lines will be changed to spec /dev/sdXn instead
of /dev/hdXn.

The kernel config (vishnu_kernel-2.6.29-gentoo-r5_config.txt) is suspect
at this point, as per Roman's information re. 2.6.29 being a thoroughly
discredited kernel version.  This configuration will _not_ be used going
forward into a more recent kernel.

vishnu_emerge_info.txt is "emerge --info" from the box.  I'm not sure
how this will give you any insight into the booting problem on the box,
but since you seem to have your knickers in a knot about my _not_
posting it, here it is :-)

Kernels on the box are built manually, using "make bzImage" and friends,
not using genkernel.

When I have some time to take the box down, upgrade the kernel and take
another shot at this problem, I'll update.
