    Have you installed any other distro before?? Have you checked the networkless instructions in gentoo's web page?

    If you are noob get as far as possible from gentoo for a WHILE, it's a highly advanced distro. Try an easier distro like Fedora, Ubuntu, SuSE, Mandriva, etc.

    Most of them offer instruction about what to do with the .iso file
