Thank you everyone for your kind offers. I went ahead with
systemrescuecd and if you choose the right kernel (vmlinuz-something?)
you boot right into Gentoo! I did try the minimal 2008.0 LiveCD but
it appears it is still broken. From that bug discussion, it sounds
like it won't be fixed.
I should also mention that I couldn't get anything to boot on my USB
key until I ran fdisk on it, even though it was pre-formatted.
