johnywhy,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Follow the Gentoo Handbook

The Minimal Installation CD is only a toolkit you use to install Gentoo.
Almost any other liveCD can be used too as none of the code from the boot media goes into your install.

This might be of help too:

Quote:
Booting Gentoo from a USB stick is really quite simple. The main challenge is to setup an initial ramdisk and to include the drivers for all the machines it is going to boot. This article describes how to install Gentoo onto a USB stick that can be booted on any computer. This installation will be just like a regular desktop installation and changes will be persistent.

Thx!

I'm seeking simplest way to run gentoo-xfce. I assume the recipe is similar, whether flash drive or HD install. i'll check out the recipe you shared.
