AFAIK, Gentoo can be installed much the same way you'd install it on a normal 
machine: mount the domain's root filesystem, unpack the stage tarballs, get 
the portage snapshort, chroot to the install and get emerge to build the 

The whole procedure is in the handbook at 
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml - you should be able 
to do it from dom0.  You can probably skip the kernel configuration stage if 
you're just going to boot it using a domU.
