Sabayon Linux Gets Behind ZFS File-System
Phoronix: Sabayon Linux Gets Behind ZFS File-System
Sabayon Linux 9 was released on Friday with a couple of key changes...
I am one of the developers who contributed to ZFS support in Sabayon 9. The licensing conflict prevented us from putting ZFS into the kernel binary. That made implementing ZFS rootfs support difficult. It was still possible, but it had to be postponed until Sabayon 10 due to time constraints.

It is not a user friendly procedure, but it should work. I use it in Gentoo.
