You should have no problem installing Gentoo using a Knoppix CD, or any other 
Linux live or install CD that will support a network connection and give you 
access to a shell CLI.  You will need only to download the necessary stage 
tarballs, depending on which stage you want to install, mount your target hard 
drives and use chroot to work with them.  I've done this plenty of times, and 
never needed a CD burner.

There are explicit instructions for installing Gentoo when booting from a 
Knoppix CD at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/altinstall.xml#doc_chap3.
