Mouse and Keyboard don't work
Hi! I'm installing Gentoo 2008 LiveCD for the first time, In a 1gb Pendrive using Unetbootin. It Booted smoothly, I choose a default kernel (Gentoo) and don't change kernel options. But when it asks to change the keyboard region, the keyboard doesn't react. It loads in default u.s. configuration, and when I try to move the mouse or use the keyboard on the desktop the don't react. None of them are usb.

Reemerge some things
Try to reemerge/emerge these packets:
If you don't know how to do it in you gentoo installation, just boot from other linux(liveCD), configure the internet, mount your Gentoo installation(for example to /mnt/gentoo)
$ mount -o bind /proc /mnt/gentoo/proc
$ mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf > /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
$ chroot /mnt/gentoo
$ source /etc/profile && env-update
$ emerge -av x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse

As you know nowdays xorg works together with hal to detect automatically some hardwre. It uses this files called policies located at /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy , you must copy the ones you need in /etc/hal/fdi/policy, here you can edit the policies for example in my case I use latin american keyb. map so I use 10-input plicy and i change "us" by "latam" . I am not an expert but I've been struggling with my xorg configuration and i've read a lot about this hope it gives you some ideas to solve your problem. Cheers
