    try and add a line like this to the fstab:
    Code:
    /dev/hdc3 /mnt/gentoo reiserfs notail 0 0
    chang /mnt/gentoo with the mountpoint and change reiserfs with the filesystem you have put gentoo on, e.g. ext3, reiserfs, ext2.

    Is that the fstab file from your Gentoo install?
    $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-src/rc-scripts/etc/fstab,
    If Slack is what you're running right now, we need to see the fstab from your Slack install.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    To Gentoo or slackware?

    Gentoo / is Reiserfs

    So is Slackwares.

    We're trying to make sure that your bootloader can "see" the directory where your kernel for Gentoo is located. Unless your Gentoo install has a mount point defined in /etc/fstab, it won't know where to go to load that kernel.

    Once you have a mountpoint defined for your Gentoo install, you will have a path in your filesystem for the bootloader to follow. That's the path you need to define in the "image" line in your lilo.conf file so that it knows where to go.

    Ok, my fstab looks now this

    /dev/hdc1 swap swap defaults 0 0

    # Slackware root
    /dev/hdc2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1

    # Gentoo root
    /dev/hdc3 /gentoo-root reiserfs defaults


    (Theres much more but those aren't important)

    Now we're getting somewhere

    What are the contents of the /gentoo-root/boot directory?

    Scourge, I think you should put some numbers after I think:
    Code:
    # Gentoo root
    /dev/hdc3 /gentoo-root reiserfs defaults 1 2

    If it's mounted and he can browse through it, I wouldn't worry much about that.

    It is always a good policy to be neat with one's fstab Fatline;
