You have to download the ARM stages and such and install from scratch on an ARM based machine.

ARM is a different computer architecture, so the x86 binaries will not work for it, nor will a x86 kernel.

By downloading the ARM stages from one of the gentoo mirrors (http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors2.xml), you can install to an ARM based system.

You do need to own one of these systems before you can use it in any way of course.
