OK, I misunderstood the problem.  I thought people were running into the freeze
when they boot their fresh installed Gentoo Linux, but it's happening
immediately on the bootdisk. OK.  Just make sure you pop in a 486-optimized
bzImage at some point so you don't spend days on this only to find that it's a
kernel issue :)
