10 If you're installing to a new disk, do a standard Gentoo install to that
11 disk, but do it from your working setup instead of the live CD
12 environment. Your existing installation has all the tools you need to
13 build a new setup in a chroot.

20 is. If you don't, it's its. Then too, it's hers. It isn't her's. It
21 isn't our's either. It's ours, and likewise yours and theirs.
