Well the X install is in the future it seems.  I think gentoo would 
benefit from a cli install/package manager more than it currently has.

I think we should sit down and chart out exactly how we want this to 
actually work.  I like Jeff's idea about the stages of install being 
done seperately...the basic installation, then portage sync then package 
selection.

I think that's a good starting ground for design conversations.  A 
couple of ideas that I have put forth...

It should work over serial line consoles as well as local displays.
It should be really easy for a beginner, yet possible for the most 
advanced user to take control at any point.
