Hey Guys

I'll try to install gentoo my first time.
I'm following the installation guide.
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml?part=1&chap=10
Now i want to edit the grub.conf, but i dont have the permission to write the file.
Code:
Error writing /boot/grub/grub.conf: Read-only file system


I must have make a mistake somwhere but I can't figure out where

Thanks for help.
Harry

That's been happening a lot lately. Just do

Code:

mount -o remount,rw /boot


and proceed from there.
