Keyboard unresponsive during install


Hello, im relatively new to linux's in general, and was recently recommended to Gentoo. I got the minimal CD in order to build things from the ground up. So i popped the CD into my macbook pro (partitions set up from soon to be gone Ubuntu file systems)and was able to choose the kernel "Gentoo". After alot of scrolling text it finally finished and gave me my shell prompt, however my keyboard simply will not work. I have downloaded the newest EFI files from apple, so basically im very lost. Any help would be great, and if more information is needed let me know.
