Gentoo experience

Hello everyone.

I am looking into installing Gentoo Linux.  I have begun reading the 
installation handbook available within their documentation and it sounds 
fascinating.  One problem I have, however, is that there seem to be so 
many steps.  Although I have no problem following directions, I thought 
the installation process would be something one could memorize.  Perhaps 
I need to keep a quick reference on hand during installation?  It does 
appear, however, that once installed, a person would probably not have 
to go through that again since they can use the `emerge' utility to keep 
their system updated.

So, I just want to hear some thoughts or ideas from others who may have 
tried this distribution.  Was speakup easy to get going during 
installation?  What about brltty?

Thanks for any and all feedback.

Best regards,

Jason Castonguay
