Tried installing Gentoo last week on the same system.
The base system compiled nicely, no problems.
Tried emerging X, both XFree and Xorg, no go. It fails to start.
Complains abot unresolved or duplicate symbols in critical modules.
So after trying to resolve that for 4 days i gave up and went back to my fav. 
distro SuSE.

Maybe i should stick to 9.0....
