No need to chroot for editing menu.lst (grub.conf).

Use the same method used by the Handbook. <-- That should link right to it.

Thats how I did it when I needed to chroot back into a blown install.

it tried that and when i tried to chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash it told me that bash was not possible.

In this event do I have to mount proc or anything to chroot?

Emerson are you saying I don't need to i just have to mount the directory?

It can't be found by grub.conf?

Also I probably should have said in post 30 that when I tried to install grub that it is what it told me. So I used the manual grub install instead.

Hi,

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?

I was going to, but penguin has been very helpful to me, actually you to have been helpful too and this way it is all contained and you guys know where to find it.

And that these are the preliminary steps to the actual make.conf and the use of USE, so wouldn't this thread still be accurate even though it has helpfully swayed a bit?

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
