    strange problem

    At first, I am installing Gentoo because everybody says it help you to learn about Linux a lot and that exactly what I want and not because al pros use it.

    I am trying to installl gentoo for first time in my comp, Created /dev/hda7 (8 gigs) to use for gentoo.

    Downloaded stage3 and portage-snapshot and burned them to a CD.
    Downloaded the minimal live cd and booted with it.
    Mounted /dev/hda7 on /mnt/gentoo
    Mounted /dev/hdb (cd with stage3 and portage) on /mnt/install-files

    Tried to unpack stage3 to /mnt/gentoo but I always get an error about no space left on device although I have 8 gigs free.

    Thanks in advance

    The root of the directory should be a new partition as far as I know, I may be wrong though.
