    Go to www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml you should be able to find a mirror there that has what you need.

    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/index.xml

    Step 1: Select your architecture
    Step 2: READ

    Read the documentation and follow it exactly, is what I hear. Read the whole thing first, then copy it into a word processor and print it. Then read it online again. Then (and only then) may you commence the installing.

    This is gentoo Read the hand book...there is no gui installer you have to manualy install gentoo yourself!....and it is not that hard to do if you read the handbook first

    What architecture are you using? x86, AMD_64, or something else.

    Go here and download and burn to cd the iso for your architecture. You only need one of the 2 iso's.

    http://iso.linuxquestions.org/versio...ersion=133#x86

    Minimal, is just that, minimal. All it has is a compiler, and not much else. You will have to download everything from one of those mirrors. The handbook will tell you what do dl and when. Advantage of this is up2date packages.

    The universal has everything you need. Instead of downloading from the net during the install, you will just copy from the cd. Again, the handbook will explain what to copy and when to copy it.
    Advantage is you can do the install without internet access.

    I didn't understand what you were asking for earlier, I hope this is a little more helpful.

    It's not hard at all, its just time consuming and pointless. The only reason why I run gentoo, is because of it's portage system.

    You can do any, stage1 or stage, with your arch, just extract the stage3-athlon tarball.

    Jesus H. Christ. RTFM. I understand that most of the question-askers here are new to Linux. But gawsh! There's a manual at the Gentoo.org website. It's not HARD to find. It tells you everything. I'm sure that in the process of finding the Gentoo site you realized that Gentoo would not come with a graphical installer. I'm sure that you all have heard that you have to compile essentially everything from scratch in Gentoo. That's one of the main features of Gentoo. I mean sheesh. There are search utilities in this forum, and I'm dead sure that these questions have been asked before. Not to mention many of the questions asked are written by people who have failed both to use capital letters and to use proper grammar. Noob questions are fine to ask. Remember that there are no stupid questions. There are only stupid people. Keep that in mind. You'll seem a lot smarter if you just pay attention. If noobs show that they are more or less willing to learn and have the capability, I will help them, by all means, as best I can. But if not, as displayed in several posts in this thread, they just become a waste of space.

    Reading is GOOD.
