105This is the Gentoo Handbook, an effort to centralise Gentoo/Linux 13This is a replacement document for the old Gentoo Handbook. The new Handbook is
106information. 14architecture-specific (well, almost) and therefore the use of the handbook.xml
15name is obsoleted.

123<title>About the Gentoo Linux Installation</title> 24<title>The Gentoo Linux Handbooks</title>
124<abstract> 25<section>
125Users not familiar with Gentoo do not always know that choice is what 26<title>Ehh??? Where is it?</title>
126Gentoo is all about. 27<body>
127</abstract> 28
128 <include href="hb-install-about.xml"/> 29<p>
30The old Gentoo Handbook (the one with all the architectural instructions
31in it) has been obsoleted in favor of the new, architecture-specific Gentoo
32Handbook.
33</p>
34
35<p>
36Note though that this architecture-specific aspect is not 100% valid
37-- the new Handbook still refers to other architectures at some points. This is
38because the Gentoo Handbook contains <e>lots</e> of information that is valid
39for all architectures and we don't want to duplicate this information across all
40versions (due to resource constraints, avoid duplication of efforts, etc.).
41</p>
42
43<p>
44We will try to keep this to a minimum to avoid confusion.
