I think that might be one of Kumba's old netboots that didn't quite work 
right.  If I'm not mistaken, he has come up with a new way of making 
them with an embedded initrd that ActuallyWorks(tm).  You might ask him 
on our irc channel when he rises from the dead (usually later PM Eastern 
time).

If you just want a kernel only, you can try 
http://dev.gentoo.org/~geoman/vmlinux64-2004-11-06.bz2 for now.  It 
should work, with the exception of rtc failing.
