I somehow got lucky late last night after messing with the Slackware CD and got it to boot a 2.6 kernel off the Gentoo 2006.0 LiveCD successfully with networking. I dont know why it hasn't freaked out yet, but something is not triggering it at the moment.

Anyway, here's the dmesg output that you requested:
