Hey,
Sorry if this is a dumb question :oops: , but I am not sure if I install the catalyst drivers before or after I install X11 on my new setup. On Arch, it was after I installed X11, but before I installed xterm, etc. Also, for a desktop AMD64 based system, on which I hope to run xfce4, do I need any other USE flags aside from: "X dri dvd java lm_sensors multilib openal?? opengl?? pulseaudio ruby sound syslog unicode"
Thanks for the help!

Welcome, treeman1111!

Gentoo will install it for you, just see http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xorg-config.xml and http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ati-faq.xml

Regarding USE flags, choose the profile that suits you best, this will give you a good set to begin with. You can always adjust them later in case you change your mind.

Thanks for the welcome! I think I have figured this stuff out. What DE would you recommend?

Gentoo is about choices.
You have to make up your mind. Feel free to experiment. Keep in mind whatever you do can be undone. I'm running Openbox on my desktop with few addons like tint2 and wbar.
The only person I do make decisions for is my wife. She started with KDE back in 2003 (because I was told it's good for former Windows users). Now she is running Xfce4 because I decided it's best for her. No complaints.
