Having problem with the install on a stock Mac G4 QuickSilver,
downloaded both ISO the packages, and the install ISO's
made two CD-R's and proceeded to use disk 1 the installer,
Mac Booted okay, into the Gentoo install screen, but when hit enter,
there it just hang.

Is there certain steps, that needs to be done first?
can't find a Mac Manual on installing Gentoo 2006.

The hard drive, does have Mac OS X on it,
will Gentoo installer wipe and re-format the drives?

Sorry, for the newbie questions.
looking for the step by step method


TKS -

The handbook is the step by step method.

What exactly is the "Gentoo Install Screen"?

Those have a nvidia chipset for video right? You might want to try typing
Code:

ppc32 video=ofonly

at the boot: prompt (if you're getting there, it's hard to say from your post).
