Post Gentoo 2006 livecd installed,how do i emerge packages locally

Hello All,
I installed gentoo for the second time(first was 2004.3) using Live cd after selecting only GRP packages to install using Gentoo gtk installer giving all CFLAGS,MAKEOPTS etc for my i am having gentoo with gnome problem is i need to install net-config and many other packages.Installer copied all these packages from livecd to /usr/ 2004.3 it was copied by me to /usr/portage/ if i try emerging amy packages,gentoo tries internet and i am not having ppp rp-pppoe etc not gentoo geeks help me to install all these packages for my standalone system without internet using available packages in /usr/portage.Since i dont know much about portage..Now what is those in /usr/portage dir lot of like app-accesibility,app-admin,app-shells etc...and here is my make.conf generated by livecd not the general way of gentoo setup.
# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically built this stage
# Please consult /etc/make.conf.example for a more detailed example
#CFLAGS="-O2 -march=i686 -pipe"
CFLAGS="-march=prescott -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"

i am ready to have packages be copied to gentoo /usr/portage/.. dir.
In gentoo 2004.3 i remember copying packages to /usr/portage/distfiles dir.but here i dont find any packages dir in gentoo2006.0 Live cd.only a portage snapshot available.whether i need to build using ebuild(which i yet 2 try!)..
emerge gives error when i try:
localhost ~ # emerge bash-completion
Calculating dependencies ...done!

Post /etc/make.globals already declared portage dir etc.
# Default rsync mirror

# Default distfiles mirrors

# Repository Paths

# Temporary build directory

# Fetching command (5 tries, passive ftp for firewall compatibility)
FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -t 5 --passive-ftp -P \${DISTDIR} \${URI}"
RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -c -t 5 --passive-ftp -P \${DISTDIR} \${URI}"

# Default user options
FEATURES="sandbox distlocks"

# Default chunksize for binhost comms

# By default wait 5 secs before cleaning a package

# By default wait 10 secs on an important warning

# Automatically clean installed packages after they are updated.
# This option will be removed and forced to yes.

# Number of times 'emerge --sync' will run before giving up.

# Number of seconds rsync will wait before timing out.

I am confused about how do i install net-setup and may other packages from these sources/ebuilds present in/usr/portage directory
