How do i boot to the install in hdd3, using a live cd?(I have Knoppix / DSL / Gentoo / MEPIS / Slakcwarew live cd's)
since you have gentoo and i presume you know how to use it, you should be capable for the following.
Boot any live CD preferably the gentoo (no gui need)
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdd3 /mnt/linux
env-update /mnt/linux (i think it was)
you should be looking at / as being what was on th hdd3.
vi /etc/lilo.conf (change of create it)
/sbin/lilo (will write it to the boot record)
reboot (it should boot on its own as long as you set bios to boot from hdd Secondary Slave)
