only press half a key at a time?
in rescue mode: create a user called aannjjaarr ... then you'll be able to login, provided you set an appropriately doubled password.

But try the non-graphical login first - see if this is a general problem.

may be trouble with keyboard or kbd driver ... or just a messed up login.

Hi,

Check out that you have the correct keyboard layout installed in your xorg.conf file.

Did you do a graphical install? Did you specify any 'extra' settings for your keyboard during that
process?

Did you check out the handbook (for 2006.0)
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...x86.xml?full=1

regards,
