I am new to gentoo.
After I installed gentoo and openbox, lxterminal, lxpanel, etc...
I am trying to install firefox. But emerge says the message like this

Code:
* IMPORTANT 5 files are needed to update in /etc
*blur blur CONFIG_PROTECT see emerge
*man page ..........


yes, I read CONFIGURATION FILE section of emerge man page.
but I don't understand.
Is there anyone who can explain understandably to a newbee.

I am a returning Gentoo newbie and this page cleared it up a lot for me.
