Actually Im quite new to linux also, im using the Knoppix livedvd instead of windows anymore and am willing to switch completely to linux. Gentoo is the only one i have in mind after trying the RR64 Gentoo, Knoppix, Mandrake, Suse, and Redhat. I have read alot of the gentoo manual, books about linux, command line tutorials, and still cant comprehend how to install gentoo, or how to use the portage system. Can someone please explain to me how to get a stage1 to commence. I cant even get a stage3 to commence after hours and hours of trying. It is quite frustrating. I want to install gentoo through knoppix so that i can read the online manual while installing, however once i create the /mnt/gentoo thats about as far as i can get.

Don't forget everyone, if you use a distro with Anaconda as the installer, it Just Works (TM). Also, make sure you are very careful if you do the non newbie friendly installation, because except for LFS, Gentoo is one of the hardest distros to install in the world! But if you finish it alive, give yourself 50 big pats on the back. Repeat with half the amount when you get X and a Window Manager working.
