6 Yeah, pretty much. I don't use gnome but helped my roommate install
7 gnome on gentoo without reading that guide. I think emerge bombed once
8 or twice and I had to fix things, but it wasn't super difficult.

11 That's the way I do it too, and will at least set up your display
12 hardware properly -- or should, it always does that part fine for me.
13 You might have to fix the mouse device though; it should
14 be /dev/input/mice most likely, not /dev/mouse as Xorg used to (still
15 does?) put in.
17 You may also have to tweak to get desired resolution/refresh.
