Gentoo Linux?? Not any time soon…

So, I clicked around, applied what I already knew, and… well, after thinking for a little bit, I thought that if the installer was already so confusing to me, I really shouldn't install the whole OS. So, I retreated (for the better I suppose) and now I am back in my trusted SuSE 10.0 environment. I guess I will just learn as much as I can about Linux through SuSE, and then move on to install a more complicated distro of Linux on my other hard drive. Oh well, just a little set-back for now, but also an opportunity that forces me to learn more about Linux. Still, from what I hear, Gentoo is an EXCELLENT Linux distro, used and loved by many, so don't let my little post here scare you off. : )
