GENTOO 1.4; Stage1 Installation: Installation freezes


Hi again,

Decided to go for a full Stage-1 type installation of Gentoo.

Unfortunately, the programme freezes:

GENTOO INSTALLATION

Thursday 28, August 2003

Start by booting your Live CD of choice. You should see a fancy boot screen with the Gentoo Linux logo on it. At this screen, you can hit Enter to begin the boot process, or boot the LiveCD with custom boot options by specifying a kernel followed by boot options and then hitting Enter.

00:58

Boot: gentoo, acpi, memtest, dokeymap, dopcmcia, noapm, nodhcp
Could not find kernel image: gentoo,

Boot: gentoo acpi memtest dokeymap dopcmcia noapm nodhcp

Keymap selection: 13 (Spanish)
----Loading 13 keymap

Processor 0 is ... 0 KB Cache
Samsung X10 XTC1600 CENTRINO (1 MB L2 Cache)

*VideoCard: nVidia Corporation|unknown device 10de:0176...
nVidia GeForce4 420 Go 32M (detected by all other Linux distros)(???)

cdimage root # net-setup eth0
Enter IP Address 172.16.0.6
Enter Broadcast Address 172.16.255.255
Enter Mask 255.255.0.0
Enter Gateway IP 172.16.0.1
Enter DNS 80.58.0.33

After the last step, system simply "stops", and nothing else happens:

Back to boot procedure:
boot: [ENTER]
...
cdimage root # net-setup eth0

Use DHCP to auto-detect my network settings
System stops again

I ran lsmod, and,

my 3c59x module is listed (unused)

So why should my network not start?
What is going on?

Cheers

No need to bother!

I kept trying and nothing happened, so

downloaded Live CD

I got network connectivity.

Regards,

Arthur
