== Introduction == <!--T:2--> 
This document was written to help you install Funtoo Linux on PC-compatible systems, while keeping distracting options regarding system configuration to a minimum.
If you've had previous experience installing Gentoo Linux then a lot of steps will be familiar, but you should still read through as there are a few differences. If you're new to installing a Gentoo-based Linux, or new to Linux entirely -- welcome! We have attempted to make these installation instructions understandable to new users as well.
{{Note|If you are installing Funtoo Linux on [[Funtoo Linux Installation on ARM|ARM]] architecture, please see [[Funtoo Linux Installation on ARM]] for notable differences regarding ARM support. }}
== Installation Overview == <!--T:6-->
This is a basic overview of the Funtoo installation process:
# [[#Live CD|Download and boot the live CD of your choice]].
# [[#Prepare Hard Disk|Prepare your disk]].
# [[#Creating filesystems|Create]] and [[#Mounting filesystems|mount]] filesystems.
# [[#Installing the Stage 3 tarball|Install the Funtoo stage tarball]] of your choice.
# [[#Chroot into Funtoo|Chroot into your new system]].

=== Prepare Hard Disk === <!--T:25-->
In this section, you will need to choose a disk format to use for booting and partitioning -- either MBR or UEFI/GPT. If you are not familiar with the differences between these options, please review our [[Install/Disk Formats|Disk Formats]] page for an overview of each option and the trade-offs. Generally, it's usually safe to pick the legacy MBR method for system disks under 2TB in size and most modern PC systems support MBR as well as UEFI booting.
==== But First... ====
Before doing anything to your disks, make sure you are partitioning the right one. Use the {{c|lsblk}} command to view a list of all block devices on your system, as well as partitions on these block devices:
# ##i##lsblk
sda            8:0    0  1.8T  0 disk
├─sda1          8:1    0  512M  0 part
├─sda2          8:2    0    8G  0 part [SWAP]
└─sda3          8:3    0  1.8T  0 part
  ├─main-root 254:0    0  500G  0 lvm  /
  └─main-data 254:1    0  1.3T  0 lvm  /home
Make sure you will not be overwriting any important data and that you have chosen the correct {{c|/dev/sd?}} device. Above, you can see that {{c|sda}} contains three partitions, {{c|sda1}}, {{c|sda2}} and {{c|sda3}}, and that {{c|sda3}} contains LVM volumes.
Once you've double-checked your target block device and made sure you'll be partitioning the correct disk, proceed to the next step.

===Kits=== <!--T:232-->
Funtoo now provides sets of packages that are know to work in what we call kits.
