Only serious mind twisted geeks will bother to go trough the process of installing Gentoo.

For ports/portage we already had BSD (and installation is MUCH more smoother).

    Have you actually *tried* installing Gentoo 1.4? I did and everything worked like a champ. The install was *slow* because I chose to start from stage 1 (compile everything from scratch) instead of stage 2 (basic pre-compiled system) or stage 3 (stage 2 + precompile desktop), but there was absolutely nothing in Gentoo that wasn't "smooth". Also, the Gentoo portage tree is much better than the ones available from the BSD distros.

    I have a gateway solo5300 laptop with no cdrom, but good internet access. Is it posible to do an installation from packages visible over the internet or off my hard drive?
