The previously stellar documentation is beginning to show its cruft. Consider this sentence that I happened upon while trying to install via PXE.
You will need a network card on the diskless client that uses the PXE protocol to boot, like many 3com cards. You will also need a BIOS that supports booting from PXE.
The very mention of 3com shows how dated this is. And I can't remember the last time I encountered a system that didn't PXE.
Is there a place that we can go to edit this? Wiki format is best, but even a source repo of the .xml files would suffice. And although there is a place for gentoo-wiki, a lot of their articles are good enough to be official documentation.
