I am running parallels 5 on Leopard and got a live dvd version of gentoo, can you install it? or do you have to boot the dvd each time to run it? If that is the case should I burn an iso and install that way, if so can you give the current url for the download, and what is 'stage 3, versus iso image?

Just so you know, Gentoo can run natively on your hardware.
This would provide a much better experience than trying to make it work through an emulator.

By native, I mean installing Gentoo on its own partition, separate from OSX.

Then you would choose (at boot time) which OS you want to run.

ps. When people talk about dual-booting, this is what they mean.

You Have my Attention, I have a ppc running tiger and ydl dual boot and I can choose at start up which os to run. That was an easy install, formated the disk for osx and for linux as free space and booted the dvd with the c key and the linux (ydl) booted and installed. Is this the same for Gentoo, if there is another way can you point me to the right direction for the manual or directions? If it is a Pain then no Gain... Macs are easy... Hope you can help. I would love to do this, have plenty of space on the drive, but Parallels believe it or not is not an emulator, it is 'parallel', I run both os's at the same time no lag at all, huge speed, you cannot tell the difference. I run windows 7 like it is real at the same time as open solaris, Ubuntu, Fedora, all at the same time, no lag. It is unreal to say the least, any way I would like to try your way...

I have a couple of ppc mac-minis that run Gentoo just fine.

I don't have any experience with the newer macs that use EFI to boot, but the procedure should be similar, just use the amd64 installation disc instead of the ppc installation disc.
