Sabayon is a desktop-oriented Gentoo with great hardware support. Too bloated, you say? Geared towards desktop users, you say? Well, did you know that Fabio added a base "stage3+" gui-less install image to the latest 3.4 build of Sabayon, which is basically an enhanced vanilla Gentoo?

This sounds like a fairly interesting project. I've installed Gentoo three times before, (and failed) so I wonder how I'd go about installing this and where I'd get the Sabayon image for the stage 3 install. I'd also like to hear the experiences from anybody that has tried this.
