I'm pretty much doing the same thing. I'll head over to forums.gentoo.org. Thanks for your help.

I have some good news. I got it working.

I included acpi & ibm_acpi support in the kernel,
and installed the gentoo package x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-100.14.09

Following Chapter 8 of "NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver README and Installation Guide", several kernel options were suggested.
This is a table of tests and results: (I can't make it look nice in this wiki)
Kernel opt...wifi...............Xorg.0.log error
----------...------------...----------------
pci=noacpi...doesn't work...Fail:edge-trigered error.
pci=biosirq...works.............Fail:module not receiving interrupts error.
noapic.........works............Fail:module not receiving interrupts
acpi=off.......doesn't work...Fail:edge-trigered
irqpoll..........works............Works:yay

So the trick on my thinkpad t61, with Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M, and Atheros wifi card, is the kernel option irqpoll.

Looks like I can't swtich between virutal consoles (ctrl-alt-F1, etc) once I start X, which I have never seen before.

I got framebuffer working with vesafb, but when I try to use nvidiafb I get:
nvidiafb: Device ID: 10de0429
nvidiafb: unknown NV_ARCH

Default Re: Lockup on Lenovo T61 w/ 100.14.06

@genx: please use 100.14.11, not 100.14.09; please also note that frame buffer consoles are not supported at this point.
