I've confirmed a few things:

1) 2.6.21-rc1 actually will boot intermittently.
2) pci=noacpi always allows 2.6.21-rc1 to boot.
2) 2.6.20 always boots.
3) There doesn't seem to be a pattern (that I can tell) between booting and not booting,
although it'll now boot more often than not (It seemed very much t'other way around yesterday)
4) When 2.6.21-rc1 doesn't boot ('Boot'? Am i using the right term here? hmm...) nothing is
sent across netconsole at all.
5) Netconsole is useful.

I've uploaded all the dmesg output i've managed to capture here:
