Hy,

I am right now at chapter 6b of the Gentoo PPC Handbook (here at codelisting 13), when my PowerBook suddenly locks up. I just wanted to switch consoles to edit make.conf (I have gotten as far as "nano -w /etc/mak"). The PowerBook does not react on any key, the CD is not spinning anymore. Just pressing and holding the powerbutton to completely turn off the PowerBook helped. *Aargh* Do I have to start all over again, or can I enter the installation process somewhere in between? If so, where?

Make sure that the thermal modules were loaded, excessive heat could cause a lockup. You could also check your memory with the memtester command. What kind of powerbook is it? As for the install, you can safely skip the partitioning/unpacking etc. and just chroot into the base system again, there's no need to redo it.
