I faced a similar problem when trying to boot DS20e's with the 2005.0
It booted smoothly with the 2004.3 and the installation went just fine. If
you didnt suceed
in installing Gentoo after booting from the RedHat-CD, then try the 2004.3
I'd be glad to share the experiences I made with the 2005.0 LiveCD not
booting at all.
I tried to boot two DS20e ( each 1x500MHz; one running Tru64 at time of
installation, the other one Gentoo )
with the 2005.0 LiveCD, but the Systems stuck in the SRM, not showing
anything of the actual boot process.
Haven't tried the 2.4 Kernel, just the 2.6, but if its of any use, I'll
try booting the 2.4 Kernel as well,
since those systems wont be in production before the end of June 2005.
