I'm in the install phase and I got to the point where I need to chroot into the new enviroment and I get the error "chroot: cannot run command '/bin/bash': Exec format error" I don't know what this means, but it might make sense to you. Any help will be much appreciated.

Edit:realized I forgot to search forums so added (Repeat) to subject

You have included very few details, but my crystal ball says you are booting with a 32bit kernel, and then trying to install Gentoo with a 64bit stage tarball.

This will not work. You need to boot with a 64bit kernel in order to install with a 64bit stage tarball.

I never knew crystal balls actually worked. Sure enough I had my brother's 32-bit livecd instead of my 64-bit livecd. Sorry for troubling you and thanks for the timely response.
