No it won't replace it, AFAIK it is intended to be in addition to the
normal method and it is _not_ intended to make installing gentoo "easy"
it is intended to (among other things) facilitate installing gentoo
onto multiple systems across a network simultaniousley and be able to
show tips etc during the install process etc. but don't
worry, the old system will still be there.
