Question Gentoo Ethernet Setup

I just isntalled Gentoo 2004.1 using the stage2 method on a PPC comp. During installation the 'net-setup eth0' command found and used my ethernet card thingy just fine but after installation it cannot seem to locate it. I tried setting it to load at start up but it says an error occurs. Is there any way to make Gentoo recognize the ethernet like before during installation? I ask because I want to install a WM like KDE and gnome but it needs internet for that but it isn't working *sigh*
Also ifconfig does not recognize eth0 but instead finds something called 'lo'.

hi there,

from gentoo forums: i thinks this is already in bugzilla.
i read something about. a quick search at gentoo forums will clarify this issue.
It happens only with 2004.1
