Hello world!

I just wanted to thank all the people who contribute to this forum. I finally got my machine up and going and it never would have happened without all the advice available here.

It took me 3 days (and nights).

Day 1: after many trials and tribulations had the machine running 1st the gen-kernel then the boot CD kernel.
Day 2. achieved a custom kernel, problem free bootable system, and configured base system (logger, mail, cron, etc)
Day 3. X compiled and working. Full KDE compiled and working.

This sent from my blazingly fast new gentoo box.

Thank you all.

Cheers!

Thank you so much. I feel like I've passed through the 'crucible of fire' and emerge 'd through.... but I did it and it worked! I'm replying to you from a system that was compiled from source code! TEXT! This is so cool!
