Not bat at all! Gentoo is not a Linux distro for newbies. It is very
good in the long run however, as long as you don't mind the lengthy
emerge/compile times. Especially long on the 200Mhz Linkstation, but
in theory your system should have a little tighter and faster running
code than those of us that went the Debian route. Installed software
should be much newer versions too.
Keep it up and please keep us informed on your progress. Since most
of the Gentoo usage has been mostly constrained to kurobox owners (who
might become a rare and dying breed, sorry to say), it would be good
for some of us LS owners to get up to speed on this so all their
knowledge and experience would not be lost.
