    Did you copy over the distfiles? Try:
    Code:
    emerge dhcpcd

    What exactly is happening when I type
    Code:
    chroot . /bin/bash --login
    ? I haven't copied anything over because I don't understand what is happining in this step or the two previous lines:
    Code:
    mount -o bind  /dev/ /mnt/gentoo/dev 
    mount -t proc proc /mnt/gentoo/proc

    Those are mounting some basic bits you require. Copy over /etc/resolv.conf, THEN chroot.

    YES! YES! YES! Thank you so much, no more misery! You guys rock! You're both hacker's in my book. You can mark this one as SOLVED. And yes, I realize you posted the solution on page 1, but hey, I'm just slow.

    Any more troubles, read the Gentoo handbook That guide's missing a few bits.

    Thats a good idea, I was using this one because the gentoo distro with dmraid suggested it at the prompt. I need to look at the handbook too, kindof forgot about it .
