Hi i would like to make a bootable gentoo usb stick that i can carry around and boot gentoo on any pc that supports booting from usb.

How would i start this thing? Should i just mount the usb drive as my root partition and install gentoo on it?

How would i make this work on different hardware. Should i try to get some hardwaredetection or should i try to make everything generic (aka framebuffer and every damn thing in the kernel compiled as a module) or what should be done?

This is merely an experiment, if it can't be done or it's to much trouble i don't mind dropping the idea, but it would be incredibly cool to have my own gentoo usb image :)
