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.
