    Do other netowrk service run properly? Specifically can you surf the net and all?

    So I would like to recommend this. This is the gentoo handbook chapter on making basic system configurations work (like fstab, net and all). If that does not work please do post. I hope that solves your problem. Good Luck!!!

    It will of course fail as your net is not working. You will have to fetch the sources required from somewhere and place them all in /usr/portage/distfiles or wherever $DISTDIR in /etc/make.conf points to.

    ok i have two gentoo installed on my computer
    one works fine(manualy installed) but i have problems with another(used text installer)

    so here is the problem
    jan@localhost ~ $ su root
    Password:
    localhost jan # cd /etc/init.d
    localhost init.d # ln -s net.lo net.eth0
    ln: `net.eth0': File exists
    localhost init.d # ln -sf net.lo net.eth0
    localhost init.d # config_eth0 ( "dhv
    >
    localhost init.d # config_eth0 ( "dhcp" )
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `"dhcp"'
    localhost init.d # ln -s net.lo net.eth0
    ln: `net.eth0': File exists
    localhost init.d # ln -s -f net.lo net.eth0
    localhost init.d # config_eth0 ( "dhcp" )
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `"dhcp"'
    localhost init.d # /etc/init.d/net.eth0
    Usage: net.lo [ flags ] < options >

    Normal Options:
    start stop restart pause zap
    Default init.d options.

    Flags:
    --quiet
    Suppress output to stdout, except if:
    1) It is a warning, then output to stdout
    2) It is an error, then output to stderr
    --nocolor
    Suppress the use of colors.

    Configuration files:
    /etc/conf.d/net.lo /etc/rc.conf

    For more info, please run '/etc/init.d/net.eth0 help'.

    You can chroot from a linux live cd or from another distro and emerge dhcpd from there
