    Edit your /etc/conf.d/local.start and just add dhcpcd to it.

    same here... after reading about the install, i decided a stage 2 or 3 install would've been depriving myself of part of the reason for using gentoo... and i can say that i'm very happy with my system right now... no bloat.. only stuff i use, etc, etc, etc.
