    Edit your /etc/rc.conf and make sure that you have this set
    Code:
    DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"
    XSESSION="GNOME"
    And then do rc-update add xdm boot.

    OR

    You can do it in this half assed way, edit /etc/conf.d/local.start and simply add gdm to it.
    # /etc/conf.d/local.start:
    # $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-src/rc-scripts/etc/conf.d/local.start,v 1.4 2002/11/18 19:39:22 azarah Exp $

    # This is a good place to load any misc.
    # programs on startup ( 1>&2 )

    gdm
