Gentoo problems

ok ive tried to install gentoo twice, both ending up messing up in the script. I cant boot the gentoo CD for some reason (every oither distro i tried worked fine) so me and my friend set everything up using knoppix and downloaded a tarball for stage 1, and he gave me a list of what to put into my makefile.conf.
make.conf file reads:
USE="X gtk gnome"
and the error was:
make:**** No rule to make target 'j2'. Stop.
!!! Error sys-apps/sed4.0.7 failed
that error was the second time and happened about 30 min into it, the first time it went for a good 9 hours on bootstrap (guessing because i turned it on at 3 PM was still goin at 12 AM and when i woke up it was blank) and when i checked it again the screen was blank, thinking it was just the screen saver or whatever i hit enter and nothing came up, tried a number of keys and none worked, so i restarted my computer and did the whole thing all over again, anyone have any ideas what could be wrong or what to do?

MAKEOPTS"-j2" should be MAKEOPTS="-j2"

also there were alot of lines like ./libs.a(gzio.o)(text+x865) in function 'gzread' and :undefined refrence to 'errno' for different things of course (errno always stayed the same however)
