This will not be available in portage, it's just a refresh to the ISO 
image used to install gentoo. Once you have gentoo installed, proper use 
of portage will keep the system updated.

This refresh just fixes some issues on the install media for specific 
plaforms. If you had problems installing with the 2005.1 image and you 
plan on reinstalling or installing a new gentoo systems on an effected 
platform, then you should get this refresh and burn a new install CD.

If you run emerge --sync and emerge -(p)vuD world on a regular basis, 
there is no need to get the media refresh. (Note, the (p) is to pretend, 
it's a good practice to check and see what is going to be up/down graded 
before actually performing any update)
