You are probably suffering from one of `kumba's shady ip32 kernels 
(sorry, just had to throw that shot in there :).  Try booting 
http://dev.gentoo.org/~geoman/vmlinux64-2004-08-30.bz2, using the initrd 
  from http://dev.gentoo.org/~kumba/mips/netboot/initrd/ as your 
nfsroot.  You could also use a stage3 as the nfsroot for that matter, 
but the initrd is probably easier.
