    Use the ubuntu or kubuntu live cd to install gentoo. The gentoo livecd is pretty horrible IMO.

    Instead of using the gentoo livecd, just use the ubuntu livecd instead. It has the same tools available, and your gentoo install will be downloaded during install anyway. Gentoo is manually installed, so you have to download the parts and compile them. Any livecd that detects your hardware will work.
