alright gentoo boots up but can setup lo and eth0. It says socket: no file found. Then in the end says error cant start netmount. After I log in and type ifconfig it says command not found. What should i do?

Btw dhcpcd is emerged and so id /etc/conf.d/net and hosts.

ifconfig is part of net-tools package.
There's a good chance you forgot to emerge it.
Hope that helps.

You're probably missing some or all of these in your kernel config:

CONFIG_PACKET = y
CONFIG_UNIX = y
CONFIG_INET = y

You are missing unix sockets, as suggested by the earlier post. Add support in kernel config -> Network Options. Or simply use genkernel, it should set safe defaults automatically.
