i think many of the people out there trying to give a shot at gentoo are struck at wheter which distribution to download…So before wasting your precious bandwidth hope u read this post.

there are mainly 5 ways to try installing gentoo of which i tried 3,which i will be discussing here.
Pros:
Livecd installer(700 MB) comes with a graphical installer..for those who wants to connect net through dialup it will be a gud option…
Minimal-cd (57 MB) is the best option i would recommend coz if you really like installing everything from scratch this suits for your needs…you can also use the genkernel making your kernel less buggy…
Host-distro/livecd:(No D/l) This option is for those people who cant wait for long hours seeing the “make” lines scrolling over CLI.

Cons:
Livecd graphical installer doesn’t start unless we do some tweaking.often the installer hangs up..
minimal cd :CLI is a bit boring and you cant carry on with other work
Host Distro/Livecd:though u can enjoy the GUI,u miss genkernel option of installing the kernel(efficient implementation)
