IIRC when i installed Gentoo in my newly-built box in 2003,
i used the X config file created by Mandrake from my 2000 box,
as i use the same monitor for both machines.

Gentoo is not for beginners, but it doesn't hurt to have good tools
& sometimes that includes a GUI interface, eg configuring Xscreensaver.
even Vim is easier to use in the Gvim version, at least for me.

there's no harm in being a fanatic, if you know when to stop (grin).
