installing Gentoo


How, theres no ISO's for the 2004.3 version, just tar.bz2 packages. I need Gentoo cuz I need a Linux distro thats compatible with the Intel 925X chipset (if you know of any, please tell me) So, where are the ISO's?

slackware 10.1 has 2.6 as an option
Gentoo 2004.3 has 2.6.10 as an option as well but takes several days longer to install

Only if you have a reasonably average system, a Gentoo install will usually take around a day, less if you have a nice CPU.

Fedora, Suse, Mandrake, Yoper,... most of the major distrobutions come with the 2.6 kernel as standard now. Not sure about Debian though.
