To the Gentoo linux users..
I've had a friend burn me 2 cd's with the recent Gentoo linux on them. He burnt these cd's last week.
He asked what processor I was running before he burnt the cd's. So this must of ment something. I'm runnning a Intel PIII coppermine.
I want to do the Gentoo stage where it basically optimizes everything for me for now.
I'm just wondering if anyone can give me a run-down of how I should go about the install.
Right now I have a Dialup connection to the internet with "Shorewall firewall installed" and masqurading for two other windows machines gatewayed to this linux box that share the same ppp connection.
Again, any usefull general step by step outline of what I need to do to get Gentoo up and runnning. I then would like to get shorewall firewall reinstalled masqurading again and Gaim instant messenger client reinstalled.
Seems simple enough but I thought that I should ask because everytime I think that its simple I usually miss a step and fugg things up...Hoping this post and your knowlegable tips will help pre-empt any initial configuration frustrations. It looks like I'm going to be learning some Gentoo'isims as well..
My pc hardware all seemed to work just fine (detection wise) when installing mandrake.
I have a intell PIII 667EB coppermine cpu, Netgear 10/100 FA310TX nic card, SoundBlaster LIve Value edition, HP 5550 deskjet printer, ATI Radeon video card, Supra Express 56k Hardware modem, Microsoft Natural Keyboard and Optical Logitech Wheel Mouse. Not using any usb ports.
Excuse me if this is too much info. I always feel better giving out to much info than to little..:)
Much appreciated, :D
