Gentoo Fails on Install

Yes I am a newb to linux, can someone help. I have the Gentoo 2006.0 instal cd and I have run into this problem everytime, when the Gentoo Installer gets to poppler it recieves a 404 from every web server. I know what this means, is there a way around having to retrieve poppler from a web server?


Well this is quite odd, this morning at 4:00 AM PST it was trying to install poppler 0.4.5 and now its isntalling 0.5.0. I guess all I can say right now is, umm k.

I think there is a setting to update your portage tree before you download anything. You should do that first. I had a problem installing KDE, 404 errors, and I updated my portage tree and it fixed all my problems.
