    aha! Ok. Allow me to amend my above statements to avoid confusion. I recommend the universal live CD, or VidaLinux, not the minimal CD.

    Thanks so much for the replies dudes, Here I come Gentoo!

    But I have one last question:

    Do I need an Internet connection to fully install Gentoo?

    If u just want the VERY base install u wont need the net (assumin u get the Universal disc) i think, but to get a working system with X u will need the net as it will need to download the tarballs it needs

    definately use the minimal live cd and an active internet connection, the results are well worth it
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
