2.6 kernel boot crashing

I have an HP Pavilion A350N that I purchased from Best Buy a
couple of months ago.  It has a 2.8-GHz Pentium 4 processor
"with Hyper-Threading Technology".  Anyway, I'm running
Debian unstable, and every 2.6 kernel image that I have
installed has crashed at boot time.  I have not tried
compiling my own, but I have tried both the -686 and the
-386 packages.  Here's what I copied off of the black screen
before unplugging the machine from the wall.
