I write here, because I wonder such strange ansfer about question
"I have only slow modem connection at home.
Can I download sources somewhere else and add them to my system?"
Generally most time of gentoo installation is compilation time of packages,
I think it is fine idea to make download packages parallel with compilation.
So answer should be something like:
Open first console (or first chroot environment)
$ emerge --fetchonly what_you_want
Open second console (or second chroot environment)
$ emerge what_you_want
This make parallel compilation/download except first packet
emerged in what_you_want.
I think people already know this trick, but it is not show in FAQ
