I have no problem booting the Dreamcast. i've been hosting my test rig for
kernel development on a debian based distro, but it is not maintained and
I believe the gentoo one is - which is why i wanted to shift to it.

Further reading suggests that the way to do this is to set up a x-dev
environment on one gentoo machine which hosts the NFS mount of the
dreamcast stuff.

I suppose I could do that, but my current development machine is Ubuntu
based and I was wondering if there was a way round that.
