Well, I'd expect that since gentoo are likely using palo as well
to generate the LIF-like image for the ISO.
Sounds like 7x0 firmware wants more on the LIF-like image than
palo is generating. Not sure we'll be able to fix that. You might
try some of the older images (Debian 3.0r0) just to see if
that was a recently introduced bug.
We installed our 720 from CD without any problem, AFAICR.
The only alternative I can suggest is attempting to net boot/install.
There are "lifimage" files available that can be fed via rbootp (IIRC)
to the 7x0 workstation. Perhaps someone else can suggest a HOW-TO
for setting that up.
