Noob needs help Please


Ok i 'm installing gentoo on a hp pavilion 5034us
P4 2.66 Ghz 512 ram
60 Gig HD
ATI 9000 IGP
dvd/dcr
no floppy

I got it to load ok so far but on boot up i'm getting some errors.

1: "trying to move old root to /initrd...Failed"
2: "kmod failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi" I get this error 3 time then it moves on
3: "scsi : <Fdomain Detection failed (no card)"
4: "8139cp: 10/100 PCI ethernet driver v 0.3.0" this comes up 14 times. (I have a realtek RT8101 nic) someone on the gentoo forums said this is the right driver I'm not sure.
My network does work I am able to ping.

I got this info from "dmesg"

could someone point me in the right Direction to fixing these problems Thanks.
