Hi!
I'm trying to install Gentoo on an ibm blade server,but i can't boot my system
i've installed yaboot-static as described in the handbook: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc64.xml?part=1&chap=10#doc_chap3
but when i reboot my system i get an error:

Code:
/pci@8000000f8000000/ide@4,1/disk@0:-1,/etc/yaboot.conf: Unknown or corrupt filesystem
Can't open config file 


my yaboot.conf :
Code:

device=disk:
partition=5
root=/dev/hda5
timeout=30
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
image=/boot/kernel
        label=linux
        read-only



and fdisk -l output:
Code:
Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x5ecc0900

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

/dev/hda6            4501        4864     2922366+  83  Linux


i have reiserfs on root partition,can this be causing the error?
Thanks!
