top left - Installation
Handbook + Installation Docs
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml
should be right for VPC.

Do you not know this? - I wonder how you got the idea and the CD then...?
Or did it not help?
Where exactly?

some more - in/for a virtual pc you need to create a virtual disk of course - which you then treat as described in the handbook.
partition it, make filesystems on it, mount it...

How to create that disk - I don't know because that is a Windows program running on Windows.
Same goes for getting connected to the net in VPC.

It might be wise to start with something a bit easier than Gentoo - for instance, Slackware.

That might be wise indeed - with Gentoo you not only have to learn to use linux.
More likely than not you are confronted with the task to sort out problems with actually building the system you do not even know how to use yet.
If slackware is the best thing to start with... that depends.
I think it is not as easy as could be.
On the other hand: that is what they said of Debian in 1997 (and today still) - but it is what I started with ...knowing literally nothing.
I guess I like it to go the hard way...
