Good call...

I'd be completely clueless on the where abouts of the latest Gentoo distro...

Who'd a thunk' it would be on their own site?

(hehe... now if you would have only asked that question over at fourms.gentoo.org -- )

gentoo isn't like most other distros... there really isn't a "latest" version. I installed my gentoo system 2 years ago, and it currently has EXACTLY the same versions of every package that you'd have if you installed it now... that's why gentoo only do quartely rebuild of their live cd's rather than numbering each release etc... versions just don't mean a thing once it's installed.
