In the Middle of my LiveCD install on my old HP pavillion laptop I decided to call it quits for the night directly after unpacking the stage 3 tarball and altering the portage make config file. I thought it might be good to put the system to "sleep". However the system failed to unlock using the password I entered when the system initially booted. Does anyone know if there is a default user password for the LiveCD? If not, Does anyone know if i can continue with the rest of the installation after rebooting or will my partitions/file systems get corrupted? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

mtangy,

Its safe to remount your filesystems and carry on.
Do not make partitions. Do not make filesystems. Those are destructive steps and everything will be just as you left it.

If you were already inside the chroot, you must do the chroot steps again.

There is no need to perform the install in one go. Indeed, on 486 and 586 class systems, that would be unusual.
