Thanks, I'm familiar with the handbook. For some reason mirrorselect
doesn't want to run from the chroot environment - error 'cannot open
tty-output'. Since I've managed to emerge an older kernel, I'll worry
about that once I have a running system. The kernel I merged compiled
ok, so that's all I need for the moment. Bit by bit, my Gentoo mindset
is returning.

     If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries
     of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
