    I installed Gentoo to this tutorial. Gentoo Linux Installation Guide with Screenshots - Part 2
    How else to install Gentoo? How to install Xorg server, Graphics Adapters drivers, a Desktop Environment and other features and how you can transform Gentoo into a powerful Desktop or Server Platform based on this minimal system installation?

    Installing and learning how to take best advantage of Gentoo is not a task for the faint-of-heart. I have installed it several times in the past, and the first time took me a month of sundays (several weeks of evenings) to get it right. Once done, it was great! Anyway, if you emerge the desktop(s) you want to use, that will also install, as necessary, the xorg servers, libraries, and related stuff (Qt, GTK+, et al). First though, get it working in minimal mode - command line.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
