Gentoo installation stage 2- emerge system problem

after stage 1
I typed in a command I wasn't suppose to and I think I told the installation to locate the installation files from the internet, and now when ever I enter "emerge system" the computer says
" Couldn't download portage-2.0.50-r1.tar.bz2"

what should I do to continue the installation?

Start over. Don't type what your not supposed to. And make sure you emerge sync so the internet file list is current.
