Forgive me if this has been touched on, I did not find it in my search:

I am thinking about installing gentoo on another of my computers, but would not like to be without use of it for a couple of days. I read a bit in 'Knoppix Hacks' that suggested using a Knoppix LiveCD to install gentoo. This sounds great, and I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with it. I cannot imagine that their would be too many problems with this, but better to ask.

Also, Is there perhaps a bootable Gentoo Live CD with xorg that you could point me too? That would be better than using one flavor to install another in my opinion...

Thanks!

Installing from Knoppix should not be that problematic...
