That might be a good idea... I will give it a try when I get a chance, maybe a week or so before I get to it. In the interum I think I am going to grab a snapshot of my machine so if I do break it I can quickly plop it back in (I have configured this machine to be really sweet! Hate to lose all that work)!
By the way, I just have to say it again.. Thus far Sabayon is a very nice Gentoo alternative!
