You can follow through most of the standard Gentoo install guide now. Make sure 
your net connection is working (e.g. put an entry in /etc/resolv.conf); make your 
linux filesystem(s) and mount it. Unpack the build tarball onto /mnt/gentoo - note 
that if you want to grab an updated tarball now, wget is available - mount proc, 
copy over /etc/resolv.conf and chroot in.
