How about a Gentoo that installs like Redhat. A nice graphical installation with the use of a mouse! This would be much appreciated for noobs who are having difficulty installing Gentoo.

I know people, like me, who really don't care for configuring kernels and all of the complicated stuff that comes with Gentoo for the price of having Portage and being able to choose your system.

Have the installation choose a default kernel and a default filesystem and let the user choose what desktop he/she wants to use and other options like that.

Gentoo has portage! I LIKE PORTAGE! But it sucks to have to struggle for 5 days troubleshooting just to get to KDE.

Haha, yeah right.

2.0Ghz of processor speed. How about something for a computer with 700Mhz.

I'm talking about a Gentoo that is easy to install but doesn't require brand new computers.
