I've gotten to the point where I need to emerge gentoo-sources. When I make the attempt, it fails. It attempts to reach distfiles.gentoo.org, distro.ibiblio.org, and reactivated.net. The error I receive is this: Temporary failure in name resolution. Any ideas?

1) You don't have to emerge gentoo-sources, although they are very good:P

2) Is the DNS server set up correctly? Are you able to connect to a serv via its name or IP only?

Before you chrooted, did you copy /etc/resolv.conf to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf?

I did not copy resolv.conf. Because it was optional, I opted not to do that. I just wanted to go with the basics for now and go from there. Should I attmept to copy it? Also, I was not able to ping outside my network here, probably because I did not copy resolv.conf. Any other suggestions for getting the kernel in place?

Just use CTRL-ALT-F2 to open another console and copy the /etc/resolv.conf file to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf

Then switch back to your chroot environment using CTRL-ALT-F1, and try again, should work.

1) Add [SOLVED] to the topic title.
2) resolv.conf should be mandatory. Without it, your system will resort to the resolver on localhost. Which, sadly, doesn't exist.
