    well, to do what andutt says you have to perform "emerge rsync" (with internet connection, so you can update the tree) before "emerge system", or you will be just recompiling your actual packages again

    Mzzbizzsnatch, you should set up your fstab like this:

    (I'm assuming you decided to do it the way they told you with the /boot partition and no /home)

    /dev/hda1 /boot ext3 noauto,noatime 1 2
    /dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/hda3 / reiserfs noatime 0 1
    /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0

    Note: the cdrom stuff might be different from yours, you might have to change that a bit.

    As for the bootloader, you should use GRUB. It's far easier to set up than lilo and is less finicky. The Gentoo install GRUB section is well written, you should have any problems especially because you're following the guide exactly.
