Chapter 1. Overview

This document describes my efforts to install a Gentoo Linux on my Acer Travelmate 6003LCi Laptop.

My normal computer is running a SuSE Linux 9.0, and so the Gentoo is my first "hand-compiled" system. It took me 3 weeks to get the base system running for everyday use - but remember, it was my first gentoo. In this time, I've learned a lot about the linux system in general and in-depth looks into a number of applications and tools.

As I'm using the 2.6.7 kernel, all settings refer to this one.
