Is it possible to completely ditch the Mac OS and install Gentoo on a Mac?

Erm...not necessarily. The first thing I would do before taking the step all the way (and then maybe discover there is hardware that you can't live without that just doesn't work) I would set up a dual-booting system with both OSX and Gentoo. If you find everything in Gentoo working nicely, then you can get rid of OSX, or even keep it in a small partition and use MOL (Mac On Linux, I guess you know about it) whenever you need a particular OSX application.

I'm itching to do this, but MOTU corporation is holding me back with their binary drivers.
I wonder if there's a way to wrap the binaries up for use in a GNU/darwin system?
