    I'm not sure, I just copy/pased into Open Office, and printed, it was ~70 pages A4.

    There isn't one that I"m aware of, but the handbook that is on gentoo's website is awesome. Gentoo has some of the best documentation around when it comes to distros.

    IMHO, it's not really worth it to print. You will be able to pull it up in links when you install. And if you install often enough that you need one a lot, then you'll know the installation procedure by heart.
