    Ok, i was going to do the entire gentoo install all at once, by following the printed handbook. Now, i am going to the movies with my uncle. I am planning ahead before i start the install. If anyone knows some breaking points where i can safely return to the install environment etc, without having to start over, and how to do that, it would help. I will probably get one or a few things done, return later, get more stuff done etc. Thing is computer still has to be acessible, in other words i have to shut it down and reboot back into windows for everyone else.
    Where is it safe to shutdown and be able to come back to where i left off in the install, and how to do it.
    Ask if you need clarification on what i am trying to accomplish
    Thanx in advance.

    Pretty much at anytime... As long as you don't care about the system being usable between these points. All you need to do is boot up again, remount your partitions, and then, if need be, chroot into your env.
