The gentoo install cd is just a gentoo system on a bootable iso. It is not that difficult to build your own (I've done it, emerge catalyst and go from there) to include whatever you want (vim, the 2.6 kernel, a known root password and the ssh server started on boot, etc.). This is a huge incentive for me to use gentoo at work, since I can totally tweak the install process so that all server's are actually setup correctly from the start. As far as I know, this is not really possible with other distributions.
