    How far into the installation does it get?

    Does it actually start installing packages.
    it was at the part where you have to verify ur settings and it says "no changes have been made to your hard drive. you can still abort installation" or something like that. no packages were installed i dont think
    thanks

    I personally would recommend Gentoo.
    You will need to know your system though. What kind of proc you have, probably i686.
    Video card, network card.
    Do you have a printer, if you can print out the handbook, it is a great help when installing Gentoo.

    Two major things required ,patience and ability ro read and follow the handbook.
    If you ask anybody about installing Gentoo, the one thing they will say is "Read the Handbook". That is not just a RTFM statement, it is a necessity when installing Gentoo.

    Before you do that, did you say you had a Knoppix cd?
    Knoppix can be installed to the hard drive, look on the Knoppix desktop, there are directions there somewhere.

    yea i do have a knoppix cd (great memory ) but i think i like the idea of gentoo and the way it adapts to archetecture. what files should i download for gentoo (right now im downloading the universal iso, but there were a couple other files on the site)?
