I'm trying to dual-boot OSX and Gentoo, but I have the problem that the LiveCD hangs on init with an error that it couldn't find a ramdisk to mount starting at block 0. I tried two different CDs, one burned on my OSX machine and one burned on my other Gentoo machine; both do the same thing. I also tried using BootX to load the kernel and the ramdisk, but it hangs at a blank screen. Hard reboot after that. What can I do?
Thanks,
Steven

Sorry, that was silly :)
G4 Sawtooth 450MHz, PC Geforce 3 with its firmware flashed so that it's now a Mac Geforce 3, 768MB RAM

Sorry, I probably don't know the answer to your question, but is this an old-world machine?

AFAIK, there are no old-world G4 machines.

Oh, and by the way, I am the original poster - I just forgot that I had a forum identity already :)
