Pretty basic, but it does the job.

Another note worthy document, the official Gentoo Handbook. There's also plenty of people in IRC and the forums to help you. Fear not, Gentoo now ships with a GTK and Ncurses installer.

The GTK/ncurses installer didn't exactly work last time I tried it, but I'm comfortable enough with the commandline to use it anyway. I hope the installer has improved in this release.

IMO, if you have a setup that will allow you to follow the handbook more or less blindly, the commandline install should be easy enough for anyone who can get over the "OMG! it's a commandline! WTFx3" stage.

Isn't it "mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc" instead of "mount -t proc proc /mnt/gentoo/proc"
Why have you obsoleted "mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev" if i may ask?
