But I'm wanting to make sure that I have the correct drivers for my nic installed, I wasn't able to find any that would work during the kernel compile.
How can I find out what driver the livecd is using so that I can ensure that I have connectivity once I finish the install? Or find the correct driver to install before the install is complete?
I do know that I've got a linksys based card, been a few years since I actually looked at what the model # was.

You also may be able to figure out what card you have by looking at a "System Information" program in KDE or GNOME, but you may need to use another LiveCD distro to get that... Just a thought.Registered Linux user #270181

yes, run lsmod to find the moduels that are loaded (probably quite a few) and use "lspci" to list your hardware.. find the ethernet card and compare to the lsmod output
lspci | grep Ethernet
If you are going to add it to modules if you get a newer kernel don't forget to emerge module-init-tools. Many headaches can be solved by that when working with modules.
