Angry Need help with ethernet setup in Gentoo( During setup proccess)

Well I just formatted my HP pavilion 725n and loaded in the iso disk instalation for Gentoo it ( minimal install) I tried following the hand book but my ethernet isnt working! I have had past experiences with linux so i am not a total noob.... I have no idea what to do. I tried the all the ways of configuring ethernet on the manula and none work. I am hooked up to a linksys hub and my ISP is DSL....

Anyone have any ideas. They would be greatly appriciated.
