    well kriss the reason gentoo is so nice is cause it is compiled for your system. everything is completely optimized to the system and will run nice and smoother on a slower machine and will be great for fast machines as well. and because its fun to do and to prove you can do it

    i'd say that to get it installed, configured, and have a GUI it'll take you about a month.. openoffice another two weeks... :P i wonder how long it would take on a 486 with 32MB RAM.... that would be an exercise in torture..

    MRH - Gentoo stage 1 can *only* be done through an internet connection.. or a connection with a computer that has the /usr/portage/distfiles directory... hopefully sarumont set up a lan with his other box to make the file xfers easier if he doesne't have a broadband connect for the second puter..

    I'm all broadband-enabled, so that's not a problem...right now, portage is...it won't build, so the bootstrap process is on hold atm.

    The were pretty stable...I switched them down a notch to just -03 -mcpu=i686 -pipe after the first few fails of portage, still no joy...I'll have to sit and look at it tonight when I have some time.

    try backing them off to -O2 -mcpu=i686 -pipe see if that works.. if i remember right, -O3 can be a little *too* optimized for the bootstrap...
