Well, I've been giving serious consideration to gentoo for the last little while. I find it very enticing, but I am very nervous about the level of sophistication required to do a stage 1 install. I mean, a stage 3 gentoo install gives me enough reason to switch, even only for `]# emerge'. I've read through the `gentoo installation manual', and, at least with the manual on hand, doesn't seem like an install would be too much rocket science..... (?)
I've read a ton of reviews, but I'd like to hear about your experiences (regarding installation, running, or anything you would like to pass on).

Like everyone else, Like another member said it is actually a good distro for beginners with emerge, rc-update and such. If you follow the install docs you should be ok. The main problem is people skip a section then wonder why there system isnt working. When i first installed Gentoo (Ok i had been using Linux for quite a while) i did it first time like i have said before Gentoo's install docs are IMO the best i have seen for any distro!!
