I did that (actually "console=ttyS0,57600" like I have wrote below) and
I also burned new 2004.2.iso with different kernel 2.6.8-gentoo-r1 but
result was the same.
I think that I have something wrong with kernel's .config because
it seems to be so that http://gnumonks.org/~laforge/weblog/
succeeded with 2.6.8-gentoo-r1
