Ok, followed all the intructions (I think! ;-)) and got to bootstrapping. Now I have extracted the tarball (stage1-x86-20040218.tar.bz2) from the CD to /mnt/gentoo, I have extracted the portage snapshot tarball (/mnt/cdrom/snapshots/portage-20040223.tar.bz2) to the /mnt/gentoo/usr, and lastly I have extracted the distfiles.

Ok,chroot'd etc.

The problem, when I run the bootstrap.sh it trys to get to the internet to get the files etc. but as I have no network this fails!!
I've tried this twice from the start and the same thing happens both times.

Not sure if I have missed something, anyone got any ideas?

Did you try this?

When you don't have internet-acces I would recommend stage3 with or without GRP[/url]

Aye, unless you can get on line you cant do a stage1 install. You are liumited to the stage3. Plus you can not use genkerel to set up your kernel networkless. You are also limited to only the vanilla-sources2.4.24 with the current LiveCD.
