Installing Gentoo is not for the feint of heart. You have to do most of the work yourself, mostly on a command line, and have a touch of insanity (like me
). Which Live CD do you have, the one that boots into X Windows, or the minimal install CD that drops you onto a command line?
In any event, the Gentoo install guide is on their web site here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...x86.xml?part=1
It's a long read,but it is accurate. If you've never configured a kernel yourself before and aren't ready to try just yet, use the "genkernel" option when it comes up in the manual.
