4 I think you should be able to boot RedHat to rescue mode, create your
5 partitions and format. Then expanded the stage1 tarball onto the new
6 partition. Do a chroot to the directory and follow the rest of the gentoo
7 install instructions. I upgraded my RedHat 7 file server while it was
8 running. I just created a directory, unpacked the stage1 tarball, did chroot
9 and ran through the bootstrap process. I also went again and emerged quite a
10 bit of packages I knew I needed. Afterwards I booted a rescue disk and moved
11 the new directories in place. Worked great.
