Subject: Slow modem connection in FAQ
Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2005 10:52:13 +0100
Hi list

I write here, because I wonder such strange ansfer about question
"I have only slow modem connection at home. 
Can I download sources somewhere else and add them to my system?"

Generally most time of gentoo installation is compilation time of packages, 
I think it is fine idea to make download packages parallel with compilation.

So answer should be something like:

Open first console (or first chroot environment)

$ emerge --fetchonly what_you_want

Open second console (or second chroot environment)

$ emerge what_you_want

This make parallel compilation/download except first packet 
emerged in what_you_want.

I think people already know this trick, but it is not show in FAQ
