Thanks for your help!

Im now stuck on compiling the Kernel,
Code Listing 2: Installing the Kernel source.
emerge gentoo-sources
does whatever it does but then stops at the end with

Digest Verification Failed
/usr/portage/distfiles/linux-2.6.11.tar.bz2
Reason: Failed on MD5 Verification.

What have I done wrong or missed out?

Thanks again!

Portage checks the integrity of each file before unpacking any, among other things it is a security safeguard against anyone uploading tampered archives. For some reason, the MD% checksum is failing, despite it agreeing with the recorded one here. I suspect the file was corrupted when copied form the DVD to your hard disk. Try deleting /usr/portage/distfiles/linux-2.6.11.tar.bz2 and running emerge gentoo-sources again. That will force it to copy the file from the DVD again.

sorry for bringing this back up it is was dead, i'm in america and there's a bit of delay in the shipping. i can't get portage to extract. i've tried everything i can think of and i still get the 'file doesn't exhist' error.
i've checked the sources on two OS's (windows and mandrake) and have even cd'd to the /mnt/cdrom/Distros/snapshots directory
i was curious tho that on the dvd portage was listed as portage-lxf68-tar.bz2
which i've even tried with the (-) instead of (.)
has anyone else had this trouble?

Can you tell us exactly what you are typing and the error message you see.

Are you using tab-completion to type the filename? It help avoid embarrassing tyops...
