Managed to actually get a copy of the 2.6.0 kernel to boot - it was next to 
useless, but it booted! (With acpi=off   -- havent tried with acpi on yet, 
that is my test for this morning ;))

Attached is a tar.gz that contains the config file and the kern.log.
Note, during boot I was tapping the CAPS LOCK key to see if the keyboard was 
active, and it appear that keyboard i/o was enabled, as there is a fair 
amount of info in the logs. Noteing there are also some errors regarding 
unknown key presses...

Also, my touchpad on the laptop didnt work :(
