Install Media

Most any live or minimal install media iso images can install funtoo. Funtoo suggests sysrescuecd. Images may be burned to cd, or loaded on a usb thumb drive by either dd or unetbootin. Unetbootin has linux, windows, and mac binaries so anyone can comfortably install funtoo from familiar live usb media.
