Few questions about gentoo install


First of all sorry for English

Well i try to install about 3 days with stage 3+GRP
after watching gentoo forums i am a bit confused
should i always use emerge -k or -K

why then i try to emerge something comes error message cat ............( can't remember) broken pype, but it installs the package and everything look's OK

Is it normal, when i try to compile kernel with genkernel it takes about 1 hour


This is my lilo config where is mistake
vga=791
boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
lba32
default=linux
image=/boot/kernel-2.4.20-gentoo-r5
label=gk_linux (The problem might be here)
root=/dev/hda3
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.20-gentoo-r5
append="root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc"

Then i try to run /sbin/lilo becomes error message that something is wrong with this label=gk_linux

and the final question, how find out the date of linux iso which is burned in cd, i need this to know because the gentoos iso 20030703 is bit buggy, cd is not mine but friends and he can't remember date.

Thanks hope you will understand

I can answer the lilo question: remove the underscore and run /sbin/lilo again
