Is there not any kernel output before the febootstrap line?  That's
what I'd expect to see there, but maybe your kernel disables printk
boot messages or something like that.

Can you boot any other kernel instead?  In the latest febootstrap you
should be able to pick a kernel by setting the $FEBOOTSTRAP_KERNEL and
possibly $FEBOOTSTRAP_MODULES environment variables (see
febootstrap-supermin-helper(8) manual page).  You could try
downloading a standard Fedora or Debian kernel >= 2.6.36 to just see
if one of those kernels works instead.  (Or compile a kernel from
upstream sources).
