siocsifaddr: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
obviously the system is not finding the ethernet card, but when i boot a live cd, my network interface is fine, im assuming that i missed something in my kernel compile, how can i fix this w/o reinstalling rom scratch?

It is because you have not loaded the correct NIC module. if you know the name of the module and you included it in the kernel as a module then use the "modprobe" command to load it. you will need to emerge modutils first for that of course.. if you cant get ont he interent to emerge anything then reboot and re-chroot from the live cd where you can use your connection to install the apps. if you dont have the module compiled then you will need to do that.
