Just an update / search for more clues..
I copied over a 2.4 .config file this time, and did a make oldconfig and with your console commands added to the append statement. I did finally get some different output. See the tail end of the output below. ( I have attached the entire log file )

If I take out the printk command, I will see no output.. So with this, does this give anyone any clues?
I tried adding those commands to the append section of the mkelf script and I still get the same thing.. I may not have mentioned it before. But I am watching these nodes over conman, as they have no video. If I use a lnxi built kernel, it will get past the firmware type message and eventually die because its not configured correctly. Which is ok, one I figure out how to get a working 2.6 kernel everytime, I wi address the other issues. I am convinced the kernel has issues. But I have even cped the .config of one of the earlier kernels and did a make oldconfig, built it, and still no change.

earlyprintk=ttyS0,115200. Where would I put these commands? And what is the earlyprintk? If I may ask?

No it does not, I built one that doesn't have vga support and am not having any luck there.
The first thing I do with cases like this: console=ttyS0,115200 earlyprintk=ttyS0,115200
to see if you even have a living kernel
