Just in case you were thinking of trying a different
distribution. ;-)

What level of expertise does one need in order to install Gentoo? It's not like installing Mandrake or SuSE, right? I'm somewhat familiar with the Debian install. Is it like Debian?

Gentoo is a command-line, configure yourself install. Fortunately, there is detailed documentation to help with the install, as well as how to maintain and upgrade Gentoo. In many cases the standard user will be satisfied with most of the default configurations and suggestions provided by Gentoo. However, you must still manually configure your own fstab, Xfree/xorg config file, and manually compile your own kernel. If you are already making changes to these with another distribution, you are probably ready for Gentoo.
