Is there a way to recover it or can some one help me rewrite this.

Please I am a noob and this is the first install of Gentoo I have ever done.

If, you haven't written it again, check the directory for a file called make.conf~ :-D
You may have to start over, but then keep a backup, or three.

make.conf

I did find a way to recover my make.conf but it's not complete.

This is what I have so if any one can help me see if I am missing anything.

The way I recovered it was I went through the Gentoo manual and typed up some of that and found some other tutorials and came up with this.
Code:
CFLAGS="-march=native -02 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j3 -l2"
USE="X gdu gtk usb -gnome -qt4 -cups -kde -qt3 -bluetooth dvdr esd eds alsa cdr"
CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK="/etc/wget /etc/rc.d"
XUSE="truetype X new-login xorg xscreensaver xv xcomposite xinerama opengl aiglx"
IMAGEUSE="jpeg gif tiff png svg pdf"
MEDIAUSE="alsa mad vidix asf win32codecs dvd mp4 aac x264 xvid nsplugin mp3 real gstreamer"
GENERAL="samba java bzip2 symlink sqlite spell xml"
SYSTEM="hal fam dbus aoss threads"
NOTUSE="-arts -qt4 -ipv6"
KDEUSE="-kde -qt3"
GNOMEUSE="policykit device-mapper extras gdu gtk cairo glitz gnome firefox"
VIDEO_CARDS="intel"
USE="${NOTUSE} ${SYSTEM} ${GENERAL} ${IMAGEUSE} ${XUSE} ${KDEUSE} ${MEDIAUSE} ${GNOMEUSE}"

Well,
Code:
FEATURES="ccache distcc"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard synaptics evdev"
CCACHE_SIZE="3G"
as an example.
