I installed everything following the Howto on my system using a via SATA-controller. But booting the installed system results in a lot of timeouts for the underlying SATA (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb) disks. Also the "missing grep" appears. Any recommendations?
BTW: Isn't it possible to transfer the part you did using the Gentoo Live-CD to the installed SuSE using chroot?
