I'm a complete linux noob btw, I know a fair amount about file directory changing from my dos days and about mounting and the whole shizam from more recently, but besides some OS basics , I really have no clue what I am doing.

Anyways pre-amble aside,

I tried to install gentoo last night on an older computer of mine, I'm just trying to setup a Dedicated Server for Steam based Games so I'm not going to be using the desktop for much else. Anyways, I got mostly through it properly, BUT I forgot fstab. I forgot to make the file with the table inside it, and I'm not really sure why, it was late at night I suppose. I just got to the reboot part and I thought i should call it quits for the night, so I turned the machine off. I'm installing of a min-CD and besides that I pretty much followed the x86 installation guide to the letter.

In idiots terms, how do I create the fstab file in the right spot? I've already booted up with livecd again because the install said
""""""

fsck.ext3 no such file or directory /dev/root/
dev/root/ : Superblock [... is bad basically]

couldn't fix filesystem
type in password for maintenance.

"""""

Help PLEASE. I know I'm an idiot. if you need more info just ask, i'm not sure what to provide..

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
Moved in favour of Freeze on first boot
