gentoo installation ,,

Hi all,
The installation of gentoo is sucking me ,,as people know that i am a big fan of debian but we have to use gentoo for official work. but finally i have install it .
here i am sending you some documentation of installation procedure.

1)install the base system through bootable Cdrom .
2)Create the partition using fdisk or cfdisk . Batter you create the patiotion using cfdisk and after that use mke2fs for creating the ext3 type.
#mke2fs -L boot /dev/hda1
3)mount root partition on /mnt/gentoo
4)mount all partition on like boot, home ,var but before you must be sure that you have make all dir in /mnt/gentoo after mounting the root.
5)copy of stage and portage form the cdrom and use following command.
copy stage3-i686-2004.3.tar.bz2..., portage-20050122.tar.bz2... along with the md5 signatures.
6). Verify md5sum -c stage3-i686-2004.3.tar.bz2.md5 ...
7). tar -xvjpf stage3-i686-2004.3.tar.bz2...
8). tar -xvjf portage-20050122.tar.bz2... -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
cp -p /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/; vi /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
