gentoo boot isos?


I was looking at the ftp sites for gentoo, and they all seemed to only offer isos for all the packages you would need for gentoo linux-but the sites indicated that these isos were not bootable. Are there any isos for gentoo linux that are bootable?

ok, I downloaded and burned the gentoo 2004.2 live cd-the x86 universal iso. The md5 checked out and it boots without errors. It puts me at colorful CLI screen. How do I startx (that doesn't work)? Can I start a web browser from that screen (mozilla and firefox commands are not found)?

X isn't installed on the livecd, but yes you can run a web browser - try typing links.

You will most likely need to read the installation handbook to get started. You will build your system using some neat scripts and a build system called Portage. No fancy GTK2 wizards with anti-aliasing here!

I have been using Gentoo for almost two years now and I am very pleased with it. Once you get used to it there is really no substitution.
