Been trying to install the 16MB image file to my laptop via bootable PCMCIA... but alas, no luck. I DID make the CD FROM the image file, but still no luck.

I'm running Win98 in my Super Slim Sony Vaio. Any suggestions?

The FAQ (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/faq.html) contains some hints. Look in the 6th paragraph.

I already know about extra arguement I need to pass along for my PCMCIA drive. But the problem is, I can't even get the boot image to BOOT... Burnt it with Ahead Nero Burning Rom from the Source Image... and no luck... :(
