You should have no problem installing Gentoo using a Knoppix CD, or any other Linux live or install CD that will support a network connection and give you access to a shell CLI. You will need only to download the necessary stage tarballs, depending on which stage you want to install, mount your target hard drives and use chroot to work with them. I've done this plenty of times, and never needed a CD burner.
