net drawback from 2007.0:
* chipsets newer than 965P(i think), don't have PATA controller no
more, PATA is supported through another controller 2007.0 doesn't know
that so you can imagine the hassle here
* new eth cards might not be supported so yet another hassle

Default 2008.0 install media

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I just built a new box (previous one's motherboard fried) and decided to
just start from scratch with gentoo ~x86. Tried the 2008.0 beta 1
liveCD but it didn't like my gpu (nvidia 8600GTS) so just did a stage3
install via ssh from another box using the system rescue cd and the most
excellent gentoo documentation. :-)

The only hassle was after the second emerge --sync, the
/usr/portage/profiles/releases directory disappeared, preventing emerge
from working. It took two additional tries at emerge --sync to get the
directory back.

Have fun,
Roy
