    When you are going through the menuconfig.
    When you get to the network part, look for your network card, and put an M next to it.
    I believe you can just chroot into the system, bring up menuconfig and compile a new kernel.

    1. Boot up with the livecd.
    2. mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo
    3. chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
    4. menuconfig

    Problem Solved.... minor typo..... i told it to load module: 3c95x whereas it should have been: 3c59x....

    Funny how something that small can make such a big difference.

    Is it possible that this driver is compiled in the kernel and I still have problems to use my network interface? My system works fine from the livecd but it just doenst work once I reboot my system using my kernel.
