Last Night I Left The Bootstrapping to finish and i woke up and it ran out of space! This also happened on the stage 3 install but alot ealier. I am using a 80GB SATA HD. My Partition Map is: sdb1 - map, sdb2 - bootstrap, sdb3 - 512MB swap, sdb4 - 74GB root. How could i run out of space.

what use variables and CFLAGS do u use for PPC?
i had a list of like 24...is that right?
and for CFLAGS i had
CFLAGS="-03 -mcpu=powerpc -mabi=altivec -maltivec -pipes -O3"
USE="- altivec -cdr -aim -apache2 -alsa -dedicated -gif -gnome -gtk -icq -java -cups -dvd -kde -mozilla -mpeg -opengl -qt -quicktime -spell -X -truetype -usb -tiff -videos"
CXXFLAGS="$CFLAGS"
MAKEOPTS="-j2"

What am i doing wrong? how can i fix this?

Is the 74Gb Partition actually full?
What is the output of 'df -h' ?

I find it very hard to believe that a Gentoo stage 3 or bootstra would fill 74Gb!! Maybe the wrong partition is mounted on / ?

Do you realize that you're excluding support for all those items listed in your USE line? That is because of the minus sign in front of them. You probably want either gnome or kde for example, certainly you want altivec not -altivec (I'm assuming here...)
Take a look at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook.xml?part=2&chap=1

The HD space problem: It can'r be that you run out of 74 GB with a stage 3, I did one on 3 GB. Are you sure you're mounting things at the right point?

does Gentoo 'know' how big the HD is ? try a df -h to make sure it see the entire drive, not sure how good support for those SATA drives is yet.

I had this error the first three times I tried installing (unsucessfully) Gentoo. Did you make sure to mount the hd at /mnt/gentoo AND THEN cd to /mnt/gentoo prior to extraction. That second point is easy to forget. Otherwise it tries to untar everything into memory which runs out prior to install completion.
