Computer restarting during boot attempt
I've just recently come from finishing an installation of Gentoo Linux. It all went rather well, considering that it was all manual, however when I try to boot Gentoo from GRUB, the computer simply restarts itself. I'm yet to understand why, and I have managed to get Windows loaded using GRUB.
Booting parts of my menu.lst looks something like this:
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hdb3
When I installed it under the grub command-line prompt, I typed
My partition looks like:
hda Windows Hard Drive
hda1 Windows Partition
hdb Linux Hard Drive
hdb1 Linux Boot Partition
hdb2 Linux Swap Partition
hdb3 Linux Root Partition
I have gotten other distributions previously running through LILO (Debian, SuSE, and Slackware), so I know that my bios is anti-boot-from-not-hda-harddrives. Would trying to setup LILO possibly be a bit more sucessful?
There being no LILO on the Live Gentoo cd, how would I possibly go about doing that, if it's a wise choice?
