    I have been looking for one of these for a couple days now. Was dreading the install..haha.

    If you still need hosts let me know. I can host one or two of them maybe.

    My VMware Player 5.0.1 gets stuck at the very beginning. There’s just a black screen.

    And there’s no info here which VM machine you’ve used to create this.

    Finaly, it WAS loaded!

    though, now i agree with Andy – those user/password are wrong.

    Well, I got it. That’s because the only download currently available is not this one.

    The download link is dead….

    I was looking for a Gentoo virtual machine yesterday. It weired, but I was unable to google anything with not too-outdated kernel.
    So, I had to make one myself. I took me half-a-day. That’s why,I think I should share my results.

    If anyone is looking for a Gentoo VM, like i was, take a quick look at the following link, maybe it suits you:
