Hello All,
I am very new to ebuild and gentoo in general especially on the Live DVD.

1. I need to know how to mount my hard drive to configure Stage3 so I can boot from it via the Live DVD.

2. I guess I can start with glibc and binutils/coreutils for the package names that I need to inquire about.

I didn't see the answers to these questions I have in the documentation. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanx,

kwa71

kwa71,

Welcome to Gentoo.

The LiveDVD is not an installer. Its intended for use as a Gentoo sampler, so that users can evaluate Gentoo without installing.
It can be used to install Gentoo but so can any other live distro.
None of the code from the boot media goes into the install. The boot media is just a toolkit you use to accomplish the install.

The install process is explained in the Gentoo Handbook
