Yeah, the install was a whore... took me 9 fucking hours the first time. But, as I fucked something up, and had to reinstall a 2nd time, the 2nd took about 4 hours. But then networking refused to work, tried every "fix" I could find... nothing, but worked fine during install so I knew it was something in the config. Said fuck it, and reinstalled a 3rd time, figured out where I fucked up the networking during install, and the 3rd install took about 2 hours.
Of course, I didn't do the source install. Just letting OpenOffice compile for 6 hours was enough to tell me installing everything from source was not my idea of fun.
A gui install would rock, for sure. There's a somewhat commercial distro, VidaLinux, that's all Gentoo, but using the Red Hat gui installer. I think it's kind of retarded they make you pay for it to get ... essentially Gentoo, which is totally free. Their free downloadable version has so many features disabled, you might as well just install Gentoo and be done with it :-/
