I did stage3(i686) Gentoo 2005.1 install but I don't know if i chose the right tarball. I have a celeron 2 ghz processor.I wasn't impressed with the speed at first but after doing an emerge -update system, I think the system is running a little faster. Is this possible or I just feel like it should be running faster? :) How often should I do emerge -update world. The handbook says frequently but not how much so? How safe is it?

Well, you could do it everyday. That wouldn't harm anything. You could also do it once a week, just to keep updated.

After doing an emerge --sync, is there a way of knowing what new packages are available?

Yes, it's called reading the manual. :P

I generally do this every day (I have my systems sync overnight):

Code:
emerge -puDNv world


In order: pretend, update, deep, newuse, verbose.
