These "everyday users" are unqualified to administrate a Gentoo box for various reasons including the inherent complexity of a source based distribution. A binary distribution with lots of "hand holding" would better suit their needs. Perhaps they could even use a binary distribution of Gentoo itself, but supported by some other entity. Sure, an "everyday user" can *use* Gentoo, but administration is best left to experts. That's all IMO, of course. ;) Zac -- gentoo-installer@g.o mailing list
