I did a stage 2 compilation back when the athlonxp 1700 (I think that was it) was new...It made me a little crazy .

I've often thought of putting together another box for the sole purpose of doing a stage one. Very difficult to beat Gentoo for the learning experience, imho.

Lol, I actually tried a "stage 1 " compilation off of debian recently. After 2 days of trying to figure it out I installed Ubuntu.
