Gentoo "It's been a while since I last reviewed Gentoo Linux because there haven't been too many significant changes in the past few releases. I've been using it as my primary desktop operating system for a year and a half, though, and I've been running my main Web/email/database server on it since October of 2004. There's a reason why I've stayed with it that long, both as a desktop and server OS - and there's also a reason why I'm writing a review of the 2006.0 release after a long hiatus from Gentoo reviews."

You should be able to get away with not downloading the whole ISO by booting with the install initrd and using nbd-http, http://freshmeat.net/projects/nbdhttp/ to mount the ISO over http.
