Ahm, yet another maybe stupid question for you..

Is it possible to install gentoo on a computer without an internet connection. I mean I have a computer here, connected to the internet using an adsl connection, but I need pppoe to make it work...

So, can I use gentoo on that one or better pick another distro? I'd really like to take gentoo, I love it, but I just can't build another gateway, just to install it...

Have you checked out this thread on the mailing list? If you dig deep enough, it lists instructions on how to get PPPoE to work for a Gentoo install.

Note that I don't have PPPoE, so I have no idea how well these instructions actually work, but it's worth a shot.

If you do manage to get it working, please post your results here for the rest of us.
