I bought a CD set of Gentoo 2005.1 for AMD64, and am trying to install it.
The system is AMD64-3200+, with 1.5G ram, and an unformatted 300 G hard 

When I tried to boot from the CD it got lost doing the auto hardware 
config. I figured it was because I had several TV tuner card plugged in, 
so I:
Boot: gentoo nodetect
It came up ok. I partitioned the HD ok. I set it up as:

dev      Boot      start      end         blocks      id      system   
      partition size
hda1      *            1         13        104391      83      Linux   
hda2                   14      379      2939895      82   Linux swap   
hda3                 380   10000   772806824+  83     Linux            
hda4            10001   36482   212724697+   83         "               
the rest

I set hda1 & 3 to ext3 file system, and hda4 to ReiserFS

The root is /mnt/gentoo   on /dev/hda3

I then did:
tar -xvjpf /mnt/cdrom/stages/stage3-20050709-2005.1.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf /mnt/cdrom/snapshots/portage-20050709.tar.bz2  -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
As I watched the blur flashing by on the monitor, about 2/3 of the way 
through the lines began to rap. When the process stopped and I could see 
what was happening; after each tar command it was stating
"cannot write no space left on device."
This baffles me as 10 Gig should be plenty of space?
Also I can't find a command that will show the amount of disk usage? I 
can't even find a command that shows that I have /mnt/gentoo on hda3?

What have I done wrong?
