I downloaded the file twice and still I get the same results. A white and black lined screen that does nothing. My computer hasn't worked for a while now (Mepis crashed) and I wanted something new. So any help to this? I know I did the procedure right because its how I got the command line one to work.

Are you saying the LiveCD won't work at all?

If thats the case you might have badly burnt the disk or the iso might have been corrupt.

To find out you might want to perform an md5sum check to see if the cd is complete.

ftp://mirror.usu.edu/mirrors/gentoo/releases/x86/2005.1/installcd/install-x86-minimal-2005.1.iso.md5

Google md5sum to find out how.

If it turns out to be a hardware problem, consider using a knoppix livecd to install gentoo (again google) because AFAIK it has better hardware compatibility.
