I was halfway through working out how to use the old way of installing 
Now I see this new way and the only difference I see is that the new way is 
a exe that extracts files somewhere onto my hard disk drive. I worked out 
where they were extracted too, and run a few programs there but it just 

Can this be turned into a program that actually downloads, installs and then 
gives a few instructions as to how to compile a program?

Can the instructions at 
be translated into a computer program that does not rely on any operator 
input but just installs a version of emerge that just runs?

I have no idea how to do it myself

Yours Sincerely Stephen Grant Brown
