This is the portion that I had the hangup at. Others referred to the 
need to boot with acpi=off - which is not possible on this computer. 
Since your error is similar to mine, I'm guessing that you need acpi and 
this kernel version is useless in its present state. I boot runlevel 3 
on the installation that is inflicted with this kernel version and can 
confirm a like effect.
