Ok... Thank you for you answres...

>>Are you using the &quot;official&quot; experimental LiveCD?
No... I am using the normal CD.. I'll change..
>>Exactly what are you trying to do?
What I am trying to do is a live-cd that automatically installs everything  
without asking anything. To do tests (currently), i am working in a virtual 
machine.. I am using vmware.
So.. I boot up, then i connect to my machine (cause i haven't done a Live-CD 
yet, i'm working on that) and copy the src of the GLI (using scp) to the  
virtual machine so i can see hopw it actually works.
I was getting that error.. but both of you have answered me.. I have to use 
the experimental Live-Cd...
Now.. it comes a new question...
Using your experimental Live CD, how can i do so that the fisrt thing 
executed after the cd boots is a script (done by me), which will ask the 
user to confirm the installation process???. If the user says "yes" then i 
start executing installer-cli (e.g.)

If not, you're <br>&gt;SOL. The installer has requirements that aren't 
satisfied by the <br>&gt;normal release CDs. Also, I'm not sure what you're 
doing copying it <br>&gt;into /mnt/gentoo before running it. Exactly what 
are you trying to <br>&gt;do?<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Luis Flores soberon

To do my <br>&gt;&gt;tests I am using a virtual Machine inside my linux box 
and booting <br>&gt;&gt;up with the live-CD. Im copying the entire installer 
directory in <br>&gt;&gt;to the /mnt/gentoo directory, but it is not mount 
(it is in RAM). I <br>&gt;&gt;try to run the<br>&gt;&gt;./installer-clie 
with the arguments required (changing first the <br>&gt;&gt;INSTALL_DIR in 
the script)<br>&gt;&gt;and i keep getting this error
