Forgive me if I sound inexperienced because I am. As of late, I've been using Yellow Dog 2.2, but I'm looking to further my knowledge of linux and I figured that thrying to install Gentoo might be a good experience. However, I haven't gotten very far because I'm having difficulty in configuring Airport so I can access my network. Would anyone be able to explain to me how I can do this? I checked through the installation guide and have not found anything. Is there somewhere else that would have the info I need. I might want to also mention that I connect using DHCP. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm actually using Airport. But I had Airport working under Debian and installed Gentoo in a chrooted directory. If you have airport working under YDL then you should be able to install it in a chrooted directory and hopefully you'll have a second partition you can tell it to boot to so you can wipe the YDL partition and use it for Gentoo...

but I wouldn't be surprised if the ppc iso kernel supports the airport module you should just be able to modprobe it following the directions for a normal gentoo install.

Hope that somewhat helped... :D
