The problem you are having more than likely relates to you NOT having a a /dev filesystem at boot.
The 2005.1 Handbook fails to mention this.
To fix the problem, boot from your live cd:
mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash env-update source /etc/profile
General Setup ->[*] Support for hot-pluggable devices
And that devfs support is NOT enabled (this would require devfsd, which cannot be emerged from your universal live cd, and is no longer standard):
File Systems -> Pseudo filesystems -> [ ] /dev file system support (OBSOLETE)
exit cd / umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo reboot

you're missing the point. he can't boot the LiveCD. sounds like your hardware isn't being recognised by the liveCD to me as well. don't know how to fix it thoHere's why Linux is easier than Windows:
Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
