Gentoo freezes when emerging

I just installed Gentoo and I'm trying to either emerge sync or emerge KDE. Every time I emerge, after about 5 minutes my screensaver kicks in. Then the computer locks up on me because I can't get the screen back. It's just black! Plus the number and scroll lock light flash on and off. What's the heck did I do to my box? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

post your question on their forums are much better for gentoo support. They are the reason gentoo users are sparse on here, those forums are much better. :-D Good luck.
