Firstly, I would like to ask all the experts here to bear with me. I am a total newbie to Gentoo and Linux. I have little time and thus will get to the point. I would like to 1. Know how to set up my internet connection(broadband), please tell me how to copy specs. Secondly, I keep meeting up with problems compiling KDE. Can someone post me to all the resources that teach me how to do away with the common possible causes?(Using 3.3.5) 3. I would like to know how to enable DMA for hard disk. Thank you very much all.

Try "/etc/conf.d/net.eth0 restart" and then "ping www.google.com". The install guide has networking instructions...

Could you be a little more specific about what kinds of problems?
