Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I got it to boot. I went back and booted the disc and tried to chroot to mnt/gentoo /bin/bash, but it didn't work . So I chroot / and it gave the sh shell ? Anyway edited the grub.conf and now my kernel boots, but it only boots to init 3 and I don't believe there is a gui. By the way I don't have any beeps like when you hit the up arrow key and there is no more commands it don't beep now. Although this is a blessing, I was curious to why it doesn't beep anymore? Is it because I didn't load kernel support for the pc speaker?
I can mount all my filesystems except for my two optical drives.
/dev/cdrom/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom auto auto,rw,users 0 0
/dev/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt/dvdrom auto auto,rw,users 0 0
What am I doing wrong?
Also I created a couple of just normal users, why don't they have they have any stuff in /home?
No, actually this thread is pretty much finished. We've got you installed AND booted, any trouble you have after that really should be a new thread. Like the issue with your CD drives, you pc speaker not beeping, etc.
If you send me a private message about your threads I'll be sure to come look at them in case I miss them.
I'll be glad to help with any Gentoo related problem... if i can, which isn't a guarantee
