66Gentoo Linux can be installed using one of three <e>stage</e> tarball files.
67A stage file is a tarball (compressed archive) that contains a minimal
68environment.
69</p>
70
71<ul>
72 <li>
73 A stage1 file contains nothing more than a compiler, Portage (Gentoo's
74 software management system) and a couple of packages on which the compiler
75 or Portage depends.
76 </li>
77 <li>
78 A stage2 file contains a so-called bootstrapped system, a minimal
79 environment from which one can start building all other necessary
80 applications that make a Gentoo environment complete.
81 </li>
82 <li>
83 A stage3 file contains a prebuilt minimal system which is almost fully
84 deployable. It only lacks a few applications where you, the Gentoo user,
85 needs to choose which one you want to install.
86 </li>
87</ul>
88
89<p>
90To help you decide what stage file you want to use, we have written down the
91major advantages and disadvantages of each stage file.

97<title>A Stage1 Approach</title>
98<body>
99
100<p>
101A <e>stage1</e> is used when you want to bootstrap and build the entire system
102from scratch.
103</p>
104
105<p>
106Starting from a stage1 allows you to have total control over the
107optimization settings and optional build-time functionality that is
108initially enabled on your system. This makes <e>stage1</e> installs good for
109power users who know what they are doing. It is also a great
110installation method for those who would like to know more about the
111inner workings of Gentoo Linux.

149<title>A Stage2 Approach</title>
150<body>
151
152<p>
153A <e>stage2</e> is used for building the entire system from a bootstrapped
154"semi-compiled" state.
155</p>
156
157<p>
158Stage2 installs allow you to skip the bootstrap process; doing this
159is fine if you are happy with the optimization settings that we chose
160for your particular stage2 tarball.

197<title>A Stage3 Approach</title>
198<body>
199
200<p>
201A <e>stage3</e> installation contains a basic Gentoo Linux system that has been
202built for you. You will only need to build a few packages of which we can't
203decide for you which one to choose.
204</p>
205
206<p>
207Choosing to go with a stage3 allows for the fastest install of Gentoo
208Linux, but also means that your base system will have the optimization
209settings that we chose for you (which to be honest, are good settings
210and were carefully chosen to enhance performance while maintaining
211stability). Stage3 is also required if you want to install Gentoo using
212prebuilt packages or without a network connection.

231You might be interested to know that, if you decide to use different
232optimization settings after having installed Gentoo, you will be able to
233recompile your entire system with the new optimization settings.

180You might find a Package CD on one of our mirrors. This CD is not an
181Installation CD but an additional resource that can be exploited during a
182networkless installation. It contains prebuilt packages (also known as the GRP
183set) that allow you to easily and quickly install additional applications
184(such as OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, ...) immediately after the networkless
185Gentoo installation.

202Previously, the Gentoo Handbook described the installation using one of three
203stage tarballs. While Gentoo still offers stage1 and stage2 tarballs, the
204official installation method uses the stage3 tarball. If you are interested in
