I know, though I´m interested in this one https://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/2006.0/handbook-x86.xml?style=printable&part=1&chap=3 , https://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/releng/installer/screenshots/index.xml .
They say: "Once the Gentoo Linux Installer (GLI) has finished loading, you will be greeted by the welcome screen." But how can it finish loading when I can' t launch it?

This project is 8 years old and never was polished enough to be reliable. It was abandoned because both developers and users had little interest in it.

This should be read as follows:

Once the Gentoo Linux Installer (vandiacutek) has finished, you will be greeted by the login promt.
