hi. i just did a fresh gentoo install. anyways, when i boot the system i get the error "netmount not started, eth0 not found". i am using a via rhine II adapter built into my asus motherboard. i have the via rhine driver enabled in the kernel (built as *, not M). however, it seems that the driver doesn't get loaded becuase when i do "dmesg | grep eth0" i get no output. does anyone know whats going on? thanks.

It's easy to miss the instructions in the handbook that tell you to emerge a dhcp client. Boot from the installation cd, mount root, mount proc, then chroot into the installed environment. If you used the guide's partition setup, it would be something like this:

Code:

mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
env-update && source /etc/profile


Then, install a dhcp client, like this:
Code:

emerge dhcpcd


If you think you've done this, definitely double-check it by typing this:
Code:

emerge -ep world | grep dhcpcd


If you've already emerged it, then others may be able to help more. I've seen stranger problems but that "optional" step is overlooked so often and is probably the most common post I see on these forums.

Yeah, after re-reading, it says it's not finding eth0 at all. That makes me think you don't have support for it compiled in. I'd go take another look at your kernel config.
