Gentoo 2005.1 amd 64 install help

Right now I am in the process of installing Gentoo 2005.1 for the AMD64 chip. I'm reading through the manual, but I'm stumped on the part about nano and the cflags and cxxflags entries. Once entered do I just quit that program and then type MAKEOPTS in the console or is that another line that needs to be entered under cxxflags?

It goes into your make.conf along with the cxxflags, chost, etc...

You could take a look at the make.conf.example and just uncomment what you need. It has excellent remarks in it to help ya out too.

Have fun with gentoo, I just installed it a few days back and am loving it. Be prepared for when you emerge Xorg and KDE/Gnome (if you need it) because thats what really took HOURS
