12 It's linked from the gentoo/amd64 project page, which is probably worth
13 bookmarking (or remembering, easy enough once you know it's there) on its

18 But here's a direct 32-bit chroot HOWTO link:

27 And I won't link them directly here, but for those running into -fPIC
28 errors (as used to be common as *.so libs need it on amd64), there's a
29 developer's howto on fixing those, and also a listing of the contents of
