I was trying to use gentoo 1.4rc3
It keeps hanging on USB and PCI hotplugging.
Any help is really apreciated... I searched all of gentoo's forums, and one guy is having the same problem, he says it is something to do with pcmcia ports.
Unfortunately gentoo does not have a nopcmcia option at start-up (with rh and mdk I have to use it + nousb and noprobe to get the installer to boot)
