LOL, quit it! A barebones Gentoo install can be done in a day. I used
to do a full gnome install in a weekend and that was before they had
GRP. Now, I did have a fairly current system, an athlon that was a
year or so old, but if you aren't trying to install on a 386 it
shouldn't take more than a weekend for a full install.
