    Try to be a bit more organised. Your posts are getting really difficult to read.

    You can't do this as a regular user. Regular users do not have exec permissions on rc-update, and don't have write permissions over anything under /etc.

    but as root the same problem.and i don't know how to start pppoe at boot
    One problem at a time, please.

    Anyway, I don't know anything about pppoe, but it should be another service, that you should be able to add with rc-update, I suppose.

    Just look for a guide, it's not difficult. Google.

    Tips on how to setup your network, including pppoe, are included on the gentoo handbook, that you -hopefully- read to install Gentoo. So, you shouldn't have any trouble configuring that.

    ,my x server don't start at boot, got this
    ERROR :could not start the Disply Manager
    One of the files in /etc/{conf.d,init.d} or /etc/rc.conf
    has a modification time in the future!
    Check that your clock is configured properly in /etc/conf.d/clock, check that the time is correct. Check that the timezone is set correctly.

    /etc/localtime must be a symlink or a copy of one of the files under /usr/share/zoneinfo, for example

    Code:
    symlink /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Madrid /etc/localtime
    After that, you can use the "touch" command to change the modification date of any file, so it will be the current time, and not a wrong date on the future.

    For example, to "touch" everything under /etc, you'd do:

    Code:
    find /etc/ | while read file; do touch "$file"; done
    i try to change date as root but when i reboot i got the same thing.
    and nano ~/.xinitrc looks like this
    This's probably because you haven't configured your clock properly, as said above. Again, this is something that is carefully described in the installation handbook. So, I think that you didn't read it. And that is why you are now having problems. Sincerely, if you are not willing to read handbooks, Gentoo might not be the best distro for you.

    Gentoo Linux Documentation -- Gentoo Handbook

    and i have uploaded the File: /var/log/Xorg.0.log to http://pastebin.com/.as sosoy77,and how this thing work?what i mean is how to identify errors in this file?
    1.- I can't access that file. The url you posted is incorrect.
    2.- The erros in that file usually start with "(EE)". But sometimes, warnings are also important "(WW)".

    and another problem this is my /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda1 /boot mkreiserfs noauto,noatime 1 2
    /dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/sda3 / mkreiserfs noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda5 /usr mkreiserfs noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda6 /home mkreiserfs noatime 0 1
    /dev/sda7 /home1 mkreiserfs noatime 0 1

    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0
    and this is nano /boot/grub/grub.conf
    # Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
    default 0
    # How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
    timeout 30
    # Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up
    # Comment out if you don't have a graphics card installed
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

    title Gentoo Linux 2.6.23-r8
    # Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.23-gentoo-r8 root=/dev/sda3 ro

    title Gentoo Linux 2.6.23-r8 (rescue)
    # Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.23-gentoo-r8 root=/dev/sda3 init=/bin/bb

    now my question: how supose to look this if i want to load all partition at boot.
    thanx anticipate
    I don't understand your question clearly.

    If you mean "how to get /boot mounted automatically on boot", remove the "noauto" option from your fstab on the corresponding line.

    There's a number of sources that are very helpful.

    The gentoo docs themselves:
    Gentoo Linux -- Gentoo Documentation Resources

    The handbooks that I linked in the post above.
    Gentoo Linux Documentation -- Gentoo Handbook

    The gentoo wiki (note that this is not official, but it's a valuable source of info anyway):
    Main Page - Gentoo Linux Wiki

    And, finally, the biggest enciclopedia about not only Gentoo, but linux in general: the gentoo forums:
    forums.gentoo.org
