alright, i was screwing around with GCC, and screwed a bunch of things up. time for a re-install. i dig out a livecd and try to boot it, only to find that it won't. i get a grey screen and it just hangs there. a mac os x install disc works fine, but gentoo won't for some reason. the only thing i think it could be is i changed a the default boot disk from my os x partition to my gentoo partition in open firmware. either that or my drive is dying. what do you think?

How long did you wait? I've noticed that on my iBook it takes a while for the cd to start booting... maybe a min or two.
