    emerge genkernel

    just do the ff:

    cd /usr/src/linux

    #configure the kernel
    make menuconfig

    #compile the kernel
    make && make modules_install

    cp -v arch/i3386/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.xx.xx-gentoo-rx

    note: I highly recommend you read the gentoo handbook for more info
