Gentoo, a distribution of choice for nerds. Well at least this is what many people think of Gentoo. This distribution is no doubt hard to install and maintain. And to add to the pain, here comes compilation. But it is worth the pain. Following is a tutorial that would help beginners to install Gentoo for the first time.

Requirements

1. Any live Gnu/Linux distribution with adequate network connection.
2. The Gentoo stage3 tarball.
3. A lot of patience and some coke.

Step 1 : Boot form Live CD/DVD

Boot from the live distribution you have. Just remember to use a 64bit live CD/DVD if you want to do a 64bit Gentoo install.

To install a 32bit Gentoo system you can use either one of a 32bit or a 64bit Live CD or DVD, but if you choose to go with a 64bit one, in this case it must be able to run 32bit binary as well.

After booting to the live system you must get connected to the Internet.

Step 2 : Setting up Partitions
