moving along so far....

well I don't want to speak too soon as this is about my 10th time trying with gentoo. but I am compilling genkernel now. I was wondering though. In the last step of the use varible . I left it alone for now because I am a newb that should not be using gentoo. but I can go back later if this install works and do what I want then right?

Yep, you can change the USE variable whenever you like. Doing it later will be fine

Modules are bits of the kernel that are loaded as required, depending on what you have connected to your machine, what filesystems you are using, etc. So long as you followed the instructions from the documentation about what to build into the kernel and what can be left as modules, you don't need to worry too much for now. If some items of hardware do not work automatically at boot, you can easily load the module manually.
