Heya, I have the 2004.1 ppc livecd, I boot it just fine, runs linuxrc etc, but when its supposed to give the root prompt, it gives me a login instead! And the roots password has been scrambled so there is no way I can login!
This kinda limits my installation.... Im using the G4 kernel from the livecd.
I have a 7300/G3 upgraded, SCSI disks...
TIA if U have any thoughts about this problem (i already posted it as a bug on bugzilla too)

i have the same problem (if i understand it correct). If I open a new console during the installation, i cant login as root... i dont know, perhaps i didnt see the message during the startup but i think the root password must be blank or not set (no login necessary). I use the x86 minimal package.

Is it a bug or is it my failure?

No... My problem is that when I boot the first time, no login, no installed gentoo, no nothing, just boot the LiveCD with BootX I get the login prompt, But I cannot login since the root password is scrambled, it is supposed to automatically open one root login for me, which it doesnt, it just asks me for login&password! I dont have any console at all!!! 8)

Yep:

make sure to pass cdroot to the kernel, if you're not using the provided bootloader.
