Thanks, all I'm just going to forget about 2004.2
I'm going back to 2004.0 with vanilla-sources.
Gentoo stability in 2004.2 isn't good. I just genkerneled 2.4 in other system
It gives me some error outputs I didn't notice while I was installing on the test
2004.0 won't probably effect anything, since portage has everything upto date.
