(kind of off-topic)

If you're really new to Linux then you may find cross-building Gentoo
on a slow machine a difficult place to begin...  RedHat or Mandrake
gives you an easier introduction.

If you do want to do it, then have a look at the cygwin cross-build
information on the Gentoo forums and Dan's crosstool.  I'm sure you
will learn a lot. :-)
