fresh gentoo install, not recognizing eth0


Yeah, when I booted my fresh gentoo install, it refused to recognize that eth0 exists. It recognized it on the livecd, but now that I'm on the hdd, no dice. I tried doing 'dhcpcd eth0' and stuff, and it all just says that eth0 doesn't exist. Warum?

Just a thought here. Bootup your LiveCD again and see which module it uses for eth0. Then load that module under your hdd install.

Boot the live cd or if your on linux now,something that the card is recognized, as root
Code:
lsmod
and see what module the Belkin uses and then try to load it in gentoo
again as root
Code:
modprobe <whatever_module>
If nothing happens add it to
/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.4
EDIT-Very Slow Typer-EDIT
