Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on Sparc.
Better luck here.

Slightly OT, but do you really need ext3 filesystem for /boot? How often do you change files there, so ext3 journal would be really used and useful?

If you needed to specify "-t ext3" while mounting it might as well mean that the kernel you use contains ext3 compiled as a module (very small possibility indeed, but still). OTOH ext2 typically works very well for /boot partitions (as for my x86, amd64 and sparc installs).

Edit: corrected spelling
