Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've no idea if this is applicable but I remember installing SunOS to an old (New at the time) Sun workstation, Motorola M680xx, pre Sparc CPU. The files were loaded onto the swap partition from which the OS was installed after an auto reboot. Once the final system was booted, the partition reverted to swap and was overwritten.
OK, probably no help at all to you at all, though I note that Live CDs appear to copy all the files over to the hard disk before instalation as well.
When in your install environment, after partitioning and before the actual install to the disk, run
without any parameters (may be with sudo, I don't know about Sabayon) in a console. This will list all mounted partitions, this way you should easily be able to determine the targets mountpoint. If it will not show up, try this during a test install (means during the actual copying of files)to the harddisk. Once you determined the correct mountpoint and the correct device it should be easy to remount the partition.
