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.

Firstly, let me say that of late, portage has been getting a little finicky lately, mostly to do with ebuilds and awk issues. I attribute this to some slacking off in the Gentoo developers' department. There can be no excuse for this.
Still, this guy obviously does not know what he's talking about. He's got a Centrino laptop, and wtf, he wants to install nVidia drivers? Whining about TWM being ugly? What did he expect, everything to be installed already? It's a source distro, for god's sake!
and "emerge kde" is the way you're supposed to do it. Not "emerge kde-somethingorother".
Take your time and read the documentation carefully. Gentoo has the best documentation of anything out there, ever. Period. It even has a wiki, and unlike most wikis, actually has information.
