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.
