    Hello and Welcome.
    Have you gotten xorg installed yet? Are you using the handbook?
    Gentoo Linux Documentation -- Wireless Networking
    Have you seen our Howto?
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wir...tart-here.html
    I know that link above it mashed so you could paste it but I cannot get it to work.

    Good deal. I suggest that you download any other LiveCD and use that to install Gentoo, the minimal CD is a royal PITA. I usually download parted magic to USB and install from there using the "Chroot" method. But any LiveCD/DVD should work. This way you will have access to the Internet and other things while installing Gentoo.

    See this link when you begin installing from LiveCD. SRCD should work fine as long as you can get the Internet working before you begin the install.

    Yes, you must create the partitions and format them first.....use the handbook until you get to the networking section, from there you will jump to the "Chroot" guide and then back to the handbook to chapter 4 to continue where you left off.
    SRCD=System Rescue CD you have.

    Sorry, you can create the partitions and format them after you "chroot". It's just personal preference I suppose.
