Gentoo 2004.3 + PCI-Express network problem
I'm having major difficulties getting Gentoo Live (Universal) 2004.3 to recognise my onboard network hardware. I'm quite sure that the live-cd doesn't contain the drivers for this PCIe puppy, but I have the drivers themselves (which I obtained from the manufacturer), so I'm wondering if there is a way to load the drivers through another removable media (FlashDrive perhaps???).
I have a Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Controller, and an 915G chipset (the drivers for this chipset are also not present; but I obtained them from Intel separately).
Is there any way for me load these drivers and get my internet connection up and running? I really need to do this since I'm compiling the Gentoo source from scratch, and I need the latest code with the help of Portage.
Thanks a lot in advance.

then you should (I stronly think) use the sk98lin driver ("Marvell Yukon Chipset / SysKonnect SK-98xx Support" (CONFIG_SK98LIN) in the kernel comile, it's under 1000Mbit nic drivers - be sure to compile that if you compile your own kernel).
