Installing using the live DVD is not recommended. See this thread: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-932636-highlight-dvd.html

This is the recommended procedure: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1

If you need help - you can run sshd from Gentoo installer and sb can help you via net.

Thats a very dangerous thing to do - handing out root access to random strangers. You might get a rootkit.

There is no officially supported procedure for installing from LiveDVD (at least nothing like i.e. Ubuntu provides). Of course You can perform the installation from that media (after all it's just copying files, chroot-ing and tinkering with configs), but You should follow the handbook.

If I can advise on something.. don't take shortcuts.. take notes instead;)
