72All Installation CDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
73partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. We currently provide
74two Installation CDs which are equally suitable to install Gentoo from, as long
75as you're planning on performing an Internet-based installation using the
76latest version of the available packages.
