todd93,

AHCI mode is often faster as IDE mode can leave out DMA support.

Well, thats one way to look at it.
Its really another learning opportunity, as you learn very little when everything JustWorks.

Start a new thread for your new 'learning opportunity'.

Okay, now I am starting to understand this, however, with emerge linux-firmware, I get the following failure:

I'm not sure why I'm having these collisions, unless it's something I overlooked.

you previously added the files in the list; perhaps by emerge radeon-ucode or by direct download from the manufacturer site(s). I would run
Code:
rm -rf /lib/firmware/radeon
rm -rf /lib/firmware/tigon
followed by
Code:
emerge linux-firmware
to let portage handle my firmware

okay, now I can report a successful boot! That is fantastic! The only trouble is: I get to the KDM login screen and keyboard or mouse does not work! lol all I could really do is just sit here and laugh.

Thanks

menuconfig should have

Code:
emerge xorg-server xf86-input-evdev

DONAHUE, NeddySeagoon, I would like to say a very special THANK YOU!! I am up and running in the new kernel, and I want you both to know how much I deeply appreciate your help. The final hurdle actually was the ohci driver, it wasn't built into the kernel, so I built it after trying the "emerge xorg-server xf86-input-evdev" and failing, and it worked. It was so simple!! Once again, I want to say thank you, I am still having some issues with pulseaudio and lvm, however, they are unrelated and I shall search out a solution for those issues separately!! I definitely owe you guys!!

This one is SOLVED!!

Thanks!!
Todd
