 # Gentoo Bootstrap
 
+These bash scripts are an attempt to have a repeatable process for creating [Gentoo Linux](http://www.gentoo.org/) images in the [Amazon EC2](http://aws.amazon.com/ec2) service. The scripts generally try to follow the [Gentoo Handbook](http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/). There are two flavors of the script:
+
+* build_gentoo_(32|64).sh
+* build_gentoo_minimal(32|64).sh
+
+The `build_gentoo_(32|64).sh` scripts try to give a quickly usable base install; while the `build_gentoo_minimal(32|64).sh` are very lightweight setups, allowing for a very flexible setup with no extra cruft.
+
 ## setup_build_gentoo.sh
 
 Optional script. Does the security group and key pair setup that is in build_gentoo.sh. Done so keys and security group can be set up just once.
