I never could find 2004.2 live CD 's out there for ppc..so, am using the 2004.1 live cd. I'm at the point of the install where I'm downloading the stage1 tarball.

I've noticed that while on the mirrors, there isn't a liveCD for 2004.2, there are the stage files out there. Would there be any problem with me grabbing the stage1 tarfile and using it even though I'm installing via a 2004.1 livecd?

I would assume the stage1 install file would be more up to date under the 2004.2 directory.

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

It worked for me on amd64 2004.1 live-cd and stage1 2004.2 tarball, my system is running great, and I don't think it would be any different with ppc.

You can use it.

It doesn't matter from which LiveCD you started and which stage-tarball you want to use. They are two complete different system. Once you are in the chroot you do a 2004.2 installation.

yeah, as Pylon said, it doesn't matter what version the the live cd is. I do all my installs (and I do 'em alot- you'd think I'd learn to stay away from BreakMyGentoo by now. :) ) off of a 1.4 cd.
