Freezing on "attempting to mount CD:- /dec/hdc"
I have WinXP & FC4 dual-booted on my notebook. Trying to install Gentoo and wipe out FC4.
Trying to install Linux (gentoo) for the first time. I burned "install-x86-minimal-2006.0.iso", tossed in the CD and it's been stuck for 5min on "attempting to mount CD:- /dec/hdc". This is after finishing with "mount CD:- dev/hda" through to /hda3.
I was able to get around this by typing "gentoo-nofb ide=nodma" at the boot: prompt. Now I have 3 other errors that I'm stuck on:
Failed to auto-scramble root password for security.
Hdc: DMA Interrupt Recovery
Hdc: lost interrupt
SQUASHFS error: zlib_fs returned unexpected result 0xfffffffd
SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 29a36ff, size 4abd
Any help would be great!
