    This sounds rather interesting, assuming this LiveDVD boots like those of the mainstream distros. It would save people a lot of time compared to an install from a minimal cd (which is the usual "Gentoo way"). I think I am going to try this. :)

    I did not check the dvd yet, but I assume it install like most liveCDs and LiveDVDs and that it is a matter of updating/installing new stuff thru Portage (getting the latest version that is in Portage).
