You may want to take a look at the SystemRescueCd [1] afaik it is based
on gentoo and more up to date. It is also possible to install it on a
live-cd.

You could also use a more recent Gentoo CD, look in the autobuilds
directory of any mirror. But I'd stick with System Rescue CD, it's so
easy to install to a USB stick.
