Response to: Installation is medieval

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.
