I am trying to install Gentoo on a Sun Ultra 10. I can boot from the universal CD after I type in "gentoo-2.4" the screen looks like it is going to boot but then I get "kernel panic vfs: unable to mount root fs on 01:00". Forgive me for any ignorance in this matter, what can I do to install Gentoo and get past this point?
thant you.

I assume you're using the 2004.1 LiveCD ... if so, it is a known bug. I experienced the problem myself when trying to install on my Ultra 60. However, the 2004.0 LiveCD works just fine; you can boot up with it, but when downloading your stage tarball, use the 2004.1 because it will save you time later on when updating your system. See the thread at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=167104 if you want to learn more.
