6 Yes.
9 first url is an "official" mirror, second can be used if first is down.
11 Put the packages you download under /usr/portage/distfiles. emerge will pick
12 them up automatically.
13 Instead of doing emerge rsync you can download latest portage tree (see FAQ)
14 and untar it under /usr (so it creates/overwrites /usr/portage).
15 Please search through archives for more (gentoo-user mailing list contains
16 even more stuff and is probably more appropriate for such questions.)
