What a pity!

Curious method. The "trouble" is I would need to mount a FC system in other
box only for this purpose.

Ok, good for you. I've done all you specify in refered post and if I execute
sabayon binary I get a python error.
¿Is there another way/tool to create/manage GNOME profiles?
Thanks for info.
