Ok, thanks to the new guide that's up, i now know the proper options for
my /boot partition.  However, there seems to be some sort of problem going
on with the directions in the guide, specifically with the configuring the
settings section.  Right after it says to do a 'chroot /mnt/gentoo' you're
to perform the 'env-update' command.  When running 'env-update' i get a
"Error: /mnt/gentoo does not exist!" or some such error.  This of course makes
sense, since that dir is now the root directory, however something tells
me that this *isn't* the way the command is supposed to work (i think).
Is it supposed to do this?  And of course, exiting out of the chroot'ed
shell to run 'env-update' doesn't work b/c then it can't even find the
command.  I've also looked at the python code for env-update in
/usr/sbin/env-update, however i haven't been able to come up with a
solution to this problem.  Any ideas?


thanks,


dave
