gentoo on hp pavillion dv2000

hi yall.Just bought a HP pavillion dv2000 laptop.I'm trying to install gentoo on an external hard-drive.The gentoo install disk is picking up my network interfaces(eth0 connects to a router,a belkin wireless.And eth1 was a usb,connected straight to my modem).The drivers are being loaded correctly and the interfaces are being brought up except that no ip addresses are being obtained.I've tried typing #dhcpcd eth0/eth1 and #net-setup eth0/eth1 but no luck.Any suggestions would be greatfuly received.Thankx in advance

I have a dv2000 laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo) and have had gentoo on it very successfully. I never used the gentoo livecd to install gentoo though, I used the ubuntu livecd and followed the gentoo handbook from there because the gentoo livecd doesn't pick up wireless cards very well.

I filled out an HCL entry on my laptop, and I have a page on my site dedicated to it.
