Gentoo I've been wanting to try Gentoo for some time, but always had to roll my eyes at the pages and pages of installation instructions. This time, however, I rolled up my sleeves and buckled down. Minutes later, I was on my way.

First you must see if Gentoo compiles properly. After you have tried a few times, you'll succeeds, perhaps...
Then a lot of stuff still doesn't work properly...
One silly example: firestarter: I had to compile it manually, then it was fine.

I also tried Slackware 10.2: everything worked out of the box, including sound: my soundcard is an absolute bitch. All you need to use Slack is a bit of experience gained with any distro.

I am very fond of Slackware. However Debian is much more accordind to my tastes.
