    There's nothing wrong in there, at least. What is the exact warning it gives you about devfs?

    It says "your Gentoo system initialization scripts have determined that your kernel has not been compiled for devfs support. Because Gentoo requires devfs support bla bla bla please read the docs on www.gentoo.org. Press enter or wait 15 seconds to continue."

    Did you select the "Automatically mount at boot" option for devfs?

    That's the thing, I never saw any options for devfs when I was doing the make menuconfig...

    Ok this is the error that comes up during the Gentoo boot:
    Code:
    *Bringing eth0 up
    SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
    eth0: unknown interface: no such device
    SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device
    eth0: unkown interface: no such device
    SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
    *failed to bring eth0 up
    
    *ERROR: Problem starting needed services
    "netmount" was not started
    I have no idea what this means. I'm still confused on the whole setting up of the network process. I set the hostname, but I don't know what to put for the dnsdomainname. Is it needed? Also, do I need to edit anything in /etc/hosts? This is what it looks like right now:
    127.0.0.1 localhost. Thanks in advance.

    Did you enter a module alias for your NIC?

    Seeing as I have no idea what that is, probably not Could you explain what that is, and how to do it? Also, could someone tell me how I should edit my /etc/conf.d/net. Here's what it looks like now:
    Code:
    # /etc/conf.d/net:
    # $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-src/rc-scripts/etc/conf.d/net,v 1.7 2002/11/18 19:39:22 azarah Exp $
    
    # Global config file for net.* rc-scripts
    
    # This is basically the ifconfig argument without the ifconfig $iface
    #
    iface_eth0="192.168.0.2 broadcast 192.168.0.255 netmask 255.255.255.0"
    #iface_eth1="207.170.82.202 broadcast 207.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
    
    # For DHCP set iface_eth? to "dhcp"
    # For passing options to dhcpcd use dhcpcd_eth?
    #
    #iface_eth0="dhcp"
    #dhcpcd_eth0="..."
    
    # For adding aliases to a interface
    #
    #alias_eth0="192.168.0.3 192.168.0.4"
    
    # NB:  The next is only used for aliases.
    #
    # To add a custom netmask/broadcast address to created aliases,
    # uncomment and change accordingly.  Leave commented to assign
    # defaults for that interface.
    #
    #broadcast_eth0="192.168.0.255 192.168.0.255"
    #netmask_eth0="255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0"
    
    
    # For setting the default gateway
    #
    #gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1"
    Thanks...
