Look at it from the new installer's point of view. He reads that stage 1 allows him to customise his Gentoo system (whether the one he's installing or the one he's installing with isn't made clear), and that stage 3 will make him put up with optimisations chosen by the distribution team. Now, I ask you, how is he to know that (for present purposes) it matters not one jot in the long run which stage he chooses, because recompilation of the entire system is recommended after installation? He's quite likely to finish the installation and then just go on to use it, oblivious of other possibilities.

I suggest you read the long thread on emwrap that I pointed you to last time. Then tell me it's all rubbish and that your method is best. -- Rgds Peter Linux Counter 5290, August 93. -- gentoo-doc@g.o mailing list
