The handbook is going to be your bible:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:Main_Page

In all likelihood, you have an x86_64 compatible processor, this means AMD64 is your choice. Please post the CPU model that you have so I can make sure. Or you can check out this page:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Handbook/Versions_media_installation_concerns#Download.2C_burn_and_boot

Anyways, I believe that the process is to download the minimal install ISO (but according to others, you can use just about any other live disk you feel like), check it, burn it to a disk (or use it in a VM), boot it, setup your environment (net, disks, et cetera), then from the livecd/dvd environment - download the stage3 files (unless you're a masochist who wants to do a stage 2 or 1), then go through the installation process and customize things.

Now as to which stage3 tarball you want, that's up to you. You'll need to do research on which one you actually want. Important questions to ask are "do I want added security systems in place?", "do I want cross platform support?", and stuff like that.

I've never done Gentoo so the above is mostly a guess on my part and from just grepping the text on the site.

Would it make you feel better that I used to run FreeBSD and did source builds for my whole system?

I kind of miss the days of having portmaster, ccache, a well made make.conf file, csuping the latest source on current and using clang. Shit was fucking baller, even on my Toshitba craptop computer.

The only thing I don't miss was compiling fuck huge shit like Firefox and LibreOffice.

At the time, I didn't know about xxxterm (now known as Xombrero) and other lighter things. I was also too stubborn to try to mix ports and packages.

Okay, this is a bit troublesome since Intel only had a handful of Intel 64 supported processors from the Celeron D Prescott-256 series (and I'm not even certain if it's from that line... it could be Cedar Mill-512. I'm really hoping it's a Celeron D 347).

If you want to say fuck it, then just install the x86 version of Gentoo. If you want to install the AMD64 version so you can support more than 3 GB of RAM (without using PAE shit), then we need to find more info on your processor.

This might be easier if you install this software so I can get more info:
http://www.piriform.com/speccy

That or you can open the device manager and find more info on the CPU.

So the main Intel Pentium line is documented for families and models, but I couldn't find it for the Celeron line. ASSUMING they kept the models linear, then I would GUESS that it would be the Celeron D 347, which is Cedar Mill and supports 64-bit instructions and NX-bit.

I should probably mention that if it is the 347, then I once again ASSUME that the BIOS supports it as well or that the CPU came with the board.

Install Speccy (or CPU-Z, but I have never used it, so install at your own risk) and we'll see if we can get some more info about it.

Sorry for all the questions and the info fetch quest. Fucking Intel. Actually, fucking companies in general. They too often fuck around with their model names, internal codes, and marketed names. AMD/ATI will invoke a huge bitchfest from me about their graphics cards.
