11 You can:
12 a) download stage3 CD, that will have some "full" set of packages compiled.
13 or
14 b) download any install CD (basic 16MB one is recommended)
15 and then, download all the sources you want to install
16 burn that on a CD (or put on any other media)
17 when time comes (after unpacking stage1 or stage2/3 (whichever is used)), just
18 put these sources under /usr/portage/distfiles.
19 In order to get portage tree itself download daily portage archive (please see
20 FAQ or even install instructions for locations. And all of these vital
21 documents are referenced on the main site
