The reason for the success of Gentoo be summed up in three words:- 'It just works'. I've been using Linux since the 1.3 kernel, i.e. approximately 7 years, and Gentoo for just over a year now and would not change back to one of the old style binary distributions for anything. The installation process is superbly well documented. Provided you can read English, and do what the instructions tell you to do, you will have a working Linux in an afternoon. Take care, the installation of new packages is so easy that you will fill your disk up full before you know what hit you. The other real bonus is the #gentoo IRC channel at irc.freenode.net. Polite people helping one another in a family friendly forum. Gentoo wholeheartedly recommended. You won't look back - promise.
