I posted in the newbie area regarding picking a linux distro for a Compaq Evo N200.
I have a 90% complete Gentoo installation - the person who has been helping me now is not contactable for 3 weeks so i dont know if anyone else can assist me?
I got up to configuring the bootloader in the x86 guide (chapter 10)
And I've got a feeling I've done it wrong - everything else was done by my friend who has several Gentoo based systems.
I thought i did the grub.conf correctly, but when i boot (without live CD) it just loads a black screen with white writing which as "GRUB>" and it expects me to type something.
(I've tried boot, kernel, configfile etc) and nothing works.
When booting the livecd again, i cannot chroot back to where I can look at the grub.conf.
I think the issue might be - I used the default kernel path /mnt/sda whereas my drive is /mnt/hda?
(I can try and get a screenshot if it would help?)
