Funtoo Stage3s are indeed not bzip2 files. They are compressed with XZ. You need to extract them using the commands on Funtoo installation manual : tar xfvJp
sorry the question was so sloppy, was using tablet and i really hate the keyboard for touchpad.
ok i am using the latest SystemRescueCd-x86-3.4.1.
i did follow the http://www.funtoo.org/wiki/Funtoo_Linux_Installation. section, # cd /mnt/funtoo
# wget -O - http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/funtoo/funtoo … est.tar.xz | tar xfvJp -. the .xz was not recognized by systemrescue which is unusual as i checked the package list from the systemrescue site and .xzutils are a stock package.
maybe there have been changes or i just burned a bad copy, i have to admit i did not check the md5 for the burn will reburn and check, try again and get back to you.
thanks for the quick response
