Gentoo - eth0: "Device not found"


well after finally going through the painful installation of gentoo I finally find out that I can't connect to the internet.

The minimal livd-cd can detect my ethernet (which is the nvidia nforce networking controller).
This uses the forcedeth modules correct?
I also checked by doing lsmod, and forcedeth was loaded when booting off the minimal live-cd.

However, when booting from gentoo, forcedeth is not loaded.

How can I get the forcedeth module onto it??
Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!!
