Gentoo Linux - Live CD- Not booting


Hello,
When I put in the Gentoo Linux Live CD and boot with:

boot: gentoo cdcache dopcmcia

This problem happens when I boot with:

boot: gentoo
boot: gentoo cdcache
boot:

It takes me to the screen with the loading bar, but nothing happens. When I wait for a long time and then press F2 I get to a console, the most recent lines of text say something about Input/Output errors

I also get errors higher in the console such as:

kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2

I would greatly appreciate any help, thanks!

Just got the error again about the input output, this is what it says:

cp: read: Input/output error
cp: etc/default: Input/output error

Oh, btw, I'm running a Sony GRZ610 (notebook) with 2.0 ghz pentium four... running the GRP disks

I think your CD may be bad. Either that or your cd-drive is having trouble reading the burned disk.

Try burning a fresh copy.

You might also want to try the SystemRescueCD as your installation medium. Not only does it provide a more recent kernel, but it also allows you to start a graphical environment during the installation.

Try to load your computer with a minimal CD.
Choose the last available ISO, for example:
install-x86-minimal-20090609.iso

In fact, you have a X server with one of the most recent kernel :P

I considere SystemRescueCD as Gentoo minimal CD with a X :P
