i tried to install Gentoo through 2006.1 "amd64-minimal-install-CD". i downloded & installed "Stage3-tarball" without any trouble. when i did:
"tar -xvjf --latest-portage-tarball-here-- -C /usr"
it threw 1000s of messages like this:
"CAN NOT OPEN FILE: no such file or directory"
MD5SUMs are fine, what could be wrong?
