i know this has been explained once before, but i can't find the thread ... could someone give a brief run down of the different stages? a friend of mine just installed Gentoo 1.4 and he said it took him about 4 days to install. and he's on a cable modem. i don't know if that would make much of a difference, but he looked at me and laughed (as he always does when we discuss bandwidth) and said i should stick with RH. jerk.Quickdraw returns ... more news at 11!
