Hello every body please helpe me
I'm trying install gentoo linux from gentoo live dvd
after configuring Fstab like this
Configure FSTAB
File: nano -w /etc/fstab
/dev/sda3 / ext4 defaults,noatime 1 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults,noatime 1 2
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0

The manual say Copy kernel image and initramfs from the LiveDVD to your new system
mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom/
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom/
cp /mnt/cdrom/boot/gentoo /boot/kernel
cp /mnt/cdrom/boot/gentoo.igz /boot/initramfs

This does not qualify as Gentoo install and is unsupported.

Gentoo is DIY Linux, using tools provided by Gentoo development team. When install is finished the installer will have fully up to date system, optimized for hardware it is running on.

Gentoo is rolling meta-distribution. Copying out of date binaries from DVD will leave the copier with a system which is not easily upgradeable, at least requires great deal of effort and knowledge to bring up to date (looking at your initial post it is way over your head). Without up to date system an attempt to add any additional software will end up in big mess. Not to mention security problems.

Do a real Gentoo install using Gentoo Handbook.

sdj,

You need to adapt the instructions to whatever media you used to boot the liveDVD you are installing on.
If you really have a 12.1 LiveDVD, its so old that updating it is for experts only and even then, it will take longer that the manual install.

The liveDVDs are really only intended to show off Gentoo, although they can be used to install following the Gentoo handbook too.
Gentoo is not a binary distro and things will not go well for you if you try to treat it like one.

Read about shellshock and heartbleed. That's two major security issues in the 12.1 LiveDVD. There will be others.
