installcd aboot.conf issues

Davide Cittaro-2
Hi all, I'm trying to boot with gentoo alpha install cd on a DS25 (titan).
It seems that all images (minimal, universal-2006.1, minimal-2006.1) have the same aboot.conf message:

# Option 0, the default, boots /boot/alpha with the graphics console.
# Option 1 boots legacy, a kernel compiled with LEGACY_START_ADDR specified.

where there is no /boot/alpha. There is only /boot/gentoo and I guess LEGACY_START_ADDR is specified in this kernel, it doesn't boot on titan.
Is there an alternate install cd with a kernel without LEGACY_START_ADDR specified?
I would like to have a runnning 2.6 system so that I can chroot into the installed gentoo and upgrade the system (i.e. glib 2.5 won't compile with a 2.4 kernel). 

Thanks, these DS25 are driving me crazy!
