If it was really an arch problem with the kernel, I don't think it would
have gotten that far.  I had once tried to use a 686 kernel on my 586
and right after loading the kernel in grub, the machine would reboot.
So if the kernel wasn't the right arch, you wouldn't get as far as you

Are you able to boot the cd using init=/bin/bash ?

That might provide a clue.
