:oHello, I am new to ppc gentoo and to my dismay the 2 livecd's that I have burned hang at the same spot.

I tried opensuse which booted fine but I hated yast/zypper. Anyhow, the initramfs seems to load but it doesnt seem to find the kernel.

I get the following:

PID hash table entries: 2048 (order: 11, 8192 bytes)
GMT Delta read from XPRAM: 0 minutes, DST: off
smp_core99_probe
core99_setup_cpu 0 done


Nothing else happens, the CD seems to spin up then spin down. I can leave it here for hours :)

2007.0 livecd, should I try using an older one?

That's usually indicative of a framebuffer issue. Using an older InstallCD isn't a problem either, you can just download the current stage3 (2007.0) and use that instead of 2006.1 to achieve the same result.
