    I tried installing gentoo once and got all kinds of error messages, but I assume that's because I suck. The real reason I'm asking is that the hardware on a D800 is relatively new and that gentoo might not find it when I install. Since I'm relatively new to Linux I don't have the know how of getting around hardware issues.

    ... be more explicit , what kind of error you get ?
    gentoo might not find it
    It is not gentoo, build a correct kernel and hotplug should do the job .
    Gentoo is an optimized distrib, you can do what ever you want, just have to know where you go
