A few months ago the Gentoo Release engineering team changed the way
that releases are done to simplfy, automate, and provide more current
release media on a more regular basis.  One of the consequences of
this is that the livecds are no-longer being released.  This leaves
the installer with no place or function any longer.  The installer
developers have all moved on to other projects, leaving GLI in an
unmaintained state.  We can no-longer offer support for the 2008.0-r1
LiveCDs for x86 and amd64, though we expect it to work for
those that use it.  During this project's five year existence, it has
been both a pride for Gentoo and a source of controversy.  The Gentoo
Handbook is still the official installation method for Gentoo.  For
those still seeking to do automated gentoo installs, please see the
