Make sure you look at the gentoo arm handbook for
relevant ideas on this installation:

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-arm.xml

particularly:

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-arm.xml?part=1&chap=2


Just a suggestion as I have no experience with this particular
system. Also realize that cross-compiling for a target system is a
different installation than using binaries, pre-existing packages or a
pseudo-distro installation that some websites may offer.


IMHO, it is easier to use binaries and packages already created,
if not a specific installation CD/usb install and get the board
up and running. Building up an embedded system, via cross-compiling
is what you should do after you gain some experience with that
specific arm platform. Be careful not to mix ideas and web pages  that
are not compatible on the different installation approaches.

James
