Gentoo reboots when loading


Hello.

I downloaded the Gentoo x86 2006.0 LiveCD with Bittorrent. I checked the MD5Sums and everything was ok, so I burned the image to cd.
When I boot from the CD, and write "gentoo" to "boot:" it starts loading normally. But after "Loading gentoo.igz ......." it says "Ready" and then it reboots the computer.

What is wrong?

Hi,

Are you trying to do an install or just to boot a livecd to check it out?

What type of system are you using?

Did you adjust/update your BIOS settings?

Actually there are alot of bootparameters to use with the live cd:

Did you check this out:

Just a few hours ago I posted the same thing to a similar question:
Look here please:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=2
The system is below the low end it seems...
You can still build it on another machine for this one and then transfer it.
