340Specifying a kernel? Yes, we provide several kernels on our Installation CDs. 338
341The default one is <c>gentoo</c>. Other kernels are for specific hardware needs 339<p>
342and the <c>-nofb</c> variants which disable framebuffer. 340When the boot prompt is shown, you get the option of displaying the available
341kernels (<c>F1</c>) and boot options (<c>F2</c>). If you make no selection
342within 20 seconds (either displaying information or using a kernel) then the
343LiveCD will fall back to booting from disk. This allows installations to reboot
344and try out their installed environment without the need to remove the CD from
345the tray (something well appreciated for remote installations).
