    After install, the first boot show error:

    * Bringnig eth0 up via DHCP [!!]

    * ERROR: Problem starting needed services.
    * "netmount" was not started.

    PS. I'm a noob at Gentoo

    netmount not started, means you don't have internet access.
    This is a major problem.
    How do you access the internet? Cable, DSL?
    What kind of Ethernet card do you have?
    Boot up with the livecd, do "lsmod" and see which module is loaded to support your ethernet card.

    What were the results of the lsmod with the livecd?

    I was going to try to explain what you should do here, but I think you will be better off if you go to the page where jaboua helped me get my internet connection working.
    Just substitute mii for 8139too and it should work.

    The 2nd page is the one that matters.

    It shows on LSPCI...

    • 0000:00:11.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905B 100BaseTX [Cyclone] (rev24)


    so that's no problem at all

    Did you do the "modules-update" after adding mii to /etc/modules.autoload.d?
    Is mii compiled into the kernel as a module?
