This one was beaten to death on the list a few months back. There are
big problems with APIC and nForce2 motherboards. Any kernel with APIC
enabled is likely to lock up an nForce2 board. Search the archives for
more info (look for "nForce2 APIC" and you should turn up a ton). You
*can* use the gentoo-sources, just make sure APIC is disabled in your
kernel .config file before you compile.

You probably don't have APIC enabled in that kernel, would be my guess.
