I have been using Gentoo for some time on my desktop, and have dual booted my 15in powerbook with OS X and Debian in the past. I was trying dual boot os x and gentoo last night ... but have come up with nothing but problems. I am sure I am jsut missing a part here and would love some help.

So I alreedy made 2 partions. 1st partition being a 10gig Parition(Linux), 2nd being the 70gigs(OS X). I booted from the gentoo 2005.0 Live cd, and I managed to stumble through the mac-fdisk setup creating a Apple_Bootstrap partion, a / partition and a /swap partition. I then mounted the partiotns and emerged everything until I got to the kernel. I was following the hand book and did and emerge gentoo-sources, emerge genkernel, and then ran genkernel --menuconfig all ... it gives and error about not being able to find the kenrel config file on /boot ...

Was I supposed to create a /boot partiton as well? I guess I just need to find some answers on how to get a dual boot working. If someone has some straight forward information kind of from start to finish that would help me a ton!.

i think there is no kernel config for genkernel working out of the box. you have to specifiy one. there are several shipping with the genkernel package. try something like this
Code:
genkernel --kernel-config=/usr/share/genkernel/ppc/G4 --menuconfig all

im not sure of the exact filename. just pick the one from that directory that seems to fit you most.
