I am attempting to install Gentoo on my AMD Athlon 64 system and am running into the error in the subject. It's when I try to chroot into the newly created system-- Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong here? I'm suspecting I got the wrong Install CD image-- when I try to run the executable, it complains:

-/bin/bash: /mnt/gentoo/bin/bash: cannot execute binary file

I've tried a stage one install and stage two install, and no luck either way. I have a feeling I'm gonna feel stupid once I find out what I missed.

Any useful help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tony

Just to be sure, did you grab one of these image files?

Yes, make sure that you're not mixing 32 and 64 -bit livecds and stage files ...
