Hi Christopher,

If all you are doing is distcc on the install, why not just a
stage3+kernel+distcc (note: if you turn off gtk/gnome since you're
just using it to compile on this, it shouldn't take a few hours to
compile at all, since you don't need that front-end.)

I'm not sure about the issue with the Sabayon installer at all, have
you tried the Sabayon channel on irc (irc.freenode.net)?
