Hello everyone!

I need to install gentoo on ASUS Eee PC, so I have been booting from flash, but the system isn't loading. I have seen invitation, chose Gentoo x86, pushed Enter - only several loader's string have been showed for me and then - black screen. The booted flash is good, because I've already installed the system with it. Any ideas?
May be I need to load without X system, but I don't know how exactly I can do it, whether I need to set another boot options or not.

Thanks

I loaded linux with the option 'nox' and all became a bit better: the loading reachs openrc status and then - no messages on screen again. Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+F1 don't cause the result.

boot a live cd/usb, enter chroot, nominally:
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

Code:
rc-update del xdm default
should put you back in control of your command line
make a graceful exit:
Code:
exit
cd
umount -l /mnt/gentoo/dev{/shm,/pts,}
umount -l /mnt/gentoo{/boot,/proc,}
reboot
Get xserver and desktop working before trying to boot directly to GUI

DONAHUE, thank you for you answer, but I don't mind so. My english may be not good enought.
I have not problem about installing gentoo, I have problem about loading from booting flash.

Now, I have prepared minimal install boot flash instead and the system loaded successfully, but I can't login as root. I tried pass such as 'empty', root, toor, gentoo, but no result. Please, help me, I can't find the right passport in internet.

Using mirror's image from here http://gentoo.telcom.net.ua/releases/x86/autobuilds/current-iso/ instead of this http://distfiles.gentoo.org/releases/x86/autobuilds/current-iso/ solved the problem.
