If anyone is interested, there's an Embedded Gentoo HOWTO I wrote as a 
documentation for my project here: 
It's mainly for people who want to put an embedded gentoo on KB9201 
ARM-based development board, but I guess there might be something 
interesting for you x86 fans too.

Be careful though, for since there is so little information on embedded 
gentoo, I had to figure some things by myself and they can be very 
incorrect (any feedback on that would be much appreciated).

Sorry for this a bit out-of-topic post.

Best wishes,
