Hey Dave,

I run Gentoo as well.

You start IDLE simply by opening a terminal and typing: idle
Or you can start a Python command line by typing: python

If IDLE doesn't work then that means that you need to have TKinter installed
before it will run. Atleast thats what Gentoo told me when I tried to run

Let us know if that helps?
