Failed Gentoo installtion on a SATA comp.
I just installed Gentoo Linux 2006.0 (2.6.16-gentoo-r9) on my friend's comp. I have installed gentoo successfully on many comp's before but this was the first time I was doing on a SATA hardrive. I faithfully followed the gentoo installtion guide (used a stage 3 tar ball install while on Fedora). The problem is that it gives Kernel Panick Error for both Fedora 5 (which was earlier running fine) and gentoo. Windows runs fine. Then I used ubuntu livecd to get into the comp and to my horror the /dev directory of Fedora was compltely empty (but not gentoo's). What could possibly have happened?
Thanks for any help in advance.
