Hello,
	Thanks, my problem is  i don't have a box that will boot off of a
CD-rom. I'm wondering about a boot floppy, or accessibility through
tftp/nfs? And i just got this idea, I've got a dual boot box, the first
hard disk is where i want to install gentoo, the second drive has a test
FreeBSD system, can i load the installer on that?
Thanks.
Dave.
