Hi Brian,

I tested to install on a K6 yesterday too. The bootcd freezes after linuxrc
is finished
So init gets not started.
I compiled everything here with -mpentium not -mpentiumpro, so the
optimization can not be the cause
for that. The tarnge thing is that older versions of gentoo worked fine on
K6/2 machines here.

If you have found the bug, please tell me, meanwhile I will try get things
working here.

Bye Achim
