I have read the handbook and I was wondering if there is some clear, simple way of installing it without too much command line interface?

I know that there was something around a graphicall installer, but never looked into it. Just search these forums for something like "graphicall installer" and cross your fingers ;)

There is no graphical installer for Gentoo as far as I'm concerned but I suggest that you do a Stage 3 if you want the simplest version. Read the handbook...alot.

I found the link: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-368662-start-0-postdays-0-postorder-asc-highlight-installer.html

I dont know anything about it, Dunno if it works or if it is even being developed or is just an abbandoned project. But it does indeed exist. :)

There is also a thread on how to install from knoppix but I don't know how keyboard intensive that is. A search on knoppix and install will probably find it. Also there is Ubuntu or KUbuntu linux which installs with virtually no user interaction. It's linux but not Gentoo.

That is exactly the same as installing from the gentoo livecd (well, with the advantage that knoppix has some more graphicall tools, you can use konqueror while you install gentoo on a terminal window) but the method is exactly the same. So it is indeed equally intensive in keyboard.

But I really would suggest you to go with the manual installation process. Give it a chance, it is a funny thing to do ;)
