Well I decided to give Gentoo a whirl. Everything seemed to go great untill I rebooted the system ... it hangs after uncompressing the kernel. I am using reiserfs (notail in fstab), hdb1 as root, hdb5 as swap, and GRUB on MBR.
GRUB shows the choices in a nice menu at boot but when I select Gentoo it hangs after uncompressing the kernel. My grub.conf is set as:
My kernel is installed and compiled correctly folowing the gnetoo install doc. Any ideas?
kernel (hd1,0)/boot/bzImage root=/dev/hdb1
