    anyway thanks for help
    The base install only takes two or three hours the first time and an hour at most after that. Of course there's no X-windows, no desktop environment, but you'll have a working gentoo.

    The only challenging part about the manual installation is compiling your kernel. Since you seem to desire an automated install, I would suggest just using the generic kernel for now and compiling a custom one later. I wasted too much time tweaking and recompiling my kernel to get it working without extra junk I don't want.

    On top of the gentoo manual I suggest also reading the section in their wiki on safe flags. There's alot of ways you can choose seemingly cool flags that turn your system into junk, but alot of good flags that you should use.

    I've been contemplating installing on my new Core 2 Duo laptop. I can't wait to try 64 bit and to see how fast it compiles.
