I followed the instructions but it failed at the fist reoobt.

VFS:Cannot open root device "sdb2" or unknow-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option.......

My fstab is
/dev/sdb2 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/sdb1 / swap sw 0 0

The aboot.config
0:2/boot/vmlinux.gz root=/dev/sdb2

Thanks!!

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on Alternative Architectures.
You'll probably have a better chance getting an answer here.

For you aboot.conf entry, try:

0:2/boot/vmlinux.gz ro root=/dev/sdb2

since your / filesystem is ext3.
