Hi,
I am trying to install gentoo on my first gen xserve and I am having some issues. It gets to the screen where I can pick the kernel I want to load with (G4, G4smp, G5, etc). When I do the default, it starts up and it runs into a kernal panic or something when it tries to cp directories from what it seems the cd. It first says that the file or directory doesn't exist for serveral directories then it panics and stops with the message that it will reboot in 180 seconds but it doesn't. I've tried the -safe boot but it says something about an unknown filesystem.

Anyone?
here are the errors:

losetup: /mnt/live/mnt/cdrom/livecd.gcloop: no such file or directory
mount: mounting /dev/loop/0 on /mnt/live/mnt/live-env failed: no such file or directory
cp: dev: no such file or directory
cp home: no such file or directory
cp root: no such file or directory
cp tmp: no such file or directory
cp etc: no such file or directory
chmod /mnt/live/tmp: no such file or directory


there are several more lines but my system rebooted before i could type all of it.
