    Im just guessing but ti could be that your network card module is not being autoloaded. did you include support for your net card when you compiled the kernel and have you properly set up the networking? (the networking you set up under the live cd is _only_ under the live cd and will be lost when you reboot).

    BTW, fix the topic title for your post :)

    Tip: Styles can be applied quickly to selected text.

    I did the stage3 installations and did a genkernel compilation b/c if i do it any other way it never works and i do not know what modules to autoload from there please help...

    Try to emerge coldplug. I was able to do it from the live cd.

    It worked for me just a few minutes ago so I created an account on linuxforums.org to see how many others I could help

    Heres more sorry about the lack of complete steps.

    check your init scripts for coldplug
    Code:
    rc-update show
    add cold plug to boot if not already
    Code:
    rc-update add coldplug boot
    Code:
    reboot
