Readers should not try to follow instructions directly from the Handbook:Parts namespace (which is THIS page!). The sections displayed below are used as a skeleton for transcluding information into the computer architecture specific handbooks and are therefore lacking critical information.
Please visit the Handbook list to read instructions for a relevant computer architecture.
On request, each part of the Gentoo Handbook as a single page as well, which makes it easier for printing.
However, this has the consequence that the links used in the handbook are not going to work properly - instead of pointing to sections later in the "full page", they will refer to the separate pages instead.
Also, a one-page full view of the entire handbook is not possible due to constraints on the wiki itself.
