why are you using that?? You should only use the guide at gentoo.org. you are probably not transferring the resolv.conf which is a very clear step in the real guide.

if you follow each step in turn, there's very little reason it won't install.

you see what can happen when you try an "easier" version.... bits are missing, and it doesn't work. you should be able to copy the /etc/resolve.conf to /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf before the chroot and it should keep working.
