SubjectRe: [2.6] Perl weirdness with ext3 and HTREE
It is possible to install gentoo in a subdir of your main box, just 
unzip the tarball
into that directory, then chroot to it and follow the rest of the steps
for installation
(skipping kernel, bootloader, syslog, etc of course), then you can test
stuff out by just chrooting to the gentoo dir, and doing "env-update ;
source /etc/profile".
