Install gentoo inside fedora


Hello, my firs post

I would very much like to get to know gentoo, but i cannot afford spending weeks with practically useless computer. So I'm wondering what would be the best approach to getting it installed and worked on, while still having my fedora desktop. No i don't mean dual-boot, i mean installing it via some VM (onto physical disk - i might try to boot it) or something so i can browser the gentoo handbook online

I've tried to install gentoo several times now - failed miserably. So this is the only option i see for now.

Look at using Qemu or Vmware Player, they are exactly what you need to do this and are available at no cost.
