    Please post your /etc/fstab so we can take a look. Can you remount it rw manually?

    yeah i can mount it r/w manually if u meant something such as :

    mount /dev/hda8 /mnt/gentoo

    as i assume it's r/w because i can copy and paste files while i'm in console of installation...

    i will be back soon with fstab , going to type it up real quick brb

    #note if your boot partition is reiser fs, add notail to opts
    /dev/hda6 /boot reiserfs auto,noatime,rw,notail 1 2
    /dev/hda8 /mnt/gentoo reiserfs auto,noatime,rw 0 1
    /dev/hda7 none swap sw 0 0

    #note the next line is critical for boot
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    #glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
    #POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink).
    #(tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will
    #use almost no memory if not populated with files)
    shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
