137<p>
138The Gentoo Documentation Project has started with the <uri
139link="handbook/">Gentoo Handbook</uri> development. Currently, the
140first two parts (<uri link="handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1">Installing
141Gentoo</uri> and <uri link="handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2">Working with

205For some people, the installation guide above doesn't suffice since their

207environments we provide the <b><uri link="altinstall.xml">Alternative

209Gentoo from another medium (distribution, bootable CD, network boot, etc.).
