Ooops: emerge system

I am a linux noob. Gentoox won't boot for me now.

ifconfig still doesn't work. Is it possible to edit the net file to specify a default static ip address that the xbox uses if on a certain gateway, but otherwise will use dhcp?

I found this viewtopic.php?t=1293 It seems that my Xecutor bios should work fine, and I agree it seems like a legal issue. Are there any other advantages to using the Cromwell bios?

Bios question

I am not a newb to Xbox hacking, however I am a newb to gentoox and installing linux on my xbox. Do I need to install a gentoox or linux bios in order to use gentoox? If not, are there advantages to doing so? Any information that can fill the gaps in my understanding is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
