Tried to connect serial port. Didn't work. However, it *did* work using the JumpStart disk.

The jumpstart disk (using aboot 0.7) worked. I just have to come up with a new gentoo installation strategy. It's geared toward RedHat, SUSE, Debian, etc. but looks like the problem is (at least partially) with 2004.3. I'll poke around the mirrors for an 1.4rc1-test4. -- G a b r i e l M .
