    lakerdonald:

    Seems you were right, i had to uninstall wine, doesn't matter though as i'm going to use Vmware instead. my / partition is around 3.5-4 gb yet i only have 300mb free space left and the only things i have installed are amsn, firefox. Surely Yoper does not take up over 3gig.

    on a side note:
    i take it you did a stage 1 install of gentoo. which do you find faster and is it by much.
