Hi-
I'm trying to install Gentoo on an Ultra V (standard 64-bit install w/ a 64-bit kernel and a 32-bit userland). I've emerged silo, set up my silo.conf file, and run silo attempting to get the boot block set up properly. Unfortunately, upon booting (ide@3/disk@0,0) I get 'SProgram Terminated'. Any thoughts as to what's going on and how to fix it?

Indeed, all that was needed was to repartition so that I had a boot partition at the beginning of the disk. I believe my boot PROM wasn't able to address a disk past 1GB, which is what threw SILO off.

He needed a separate partition for silo.
