Unhappy New Gentoo install (insmod error; gnome startup)


First of all, I am new to Gentoo, not new to Linux.
I need some help with a new install fo Gentoo (Started with stage 1 from the LiveCD 1.4)

I have Gentoo installed and all of my hardware works and I can get on the net. However, I have the following problems:

1. At boot up, I get a LOT of insmod failures for e100. How do I prevent gentoo from trying to load that module since I don't need it anyways?

2. I did an "emerge -k gnome", now how do I get into Gnome?
What is the best way to configure gnome to start at bootup?

3. After installing gnome, I get multiple errors when I login and logout.

Modprobe: Can't location module [blah]
Modprobe: Can't location module [blah]
Modprobe: Can't location module [blah]
Modprobe: Can't location module [blah]
..etc...

What is the cause of this?


Thanks in advance!

1. remove it from /etc/modules.autoload
2. make xdm to be a startup service - rc-update add xdm default
3. not a chance of knowing without REAL information.

/etc/modules.autoload.d/ has 2 files in it
kernel-2.4 and kernel-2.5
Both files do not have any modules in them.

How else could a module get loaded automatically?
If the e100 driver was compiled in the kernel, I would not get insmod errors, so that is not the problem.
Unless I am wrong, which seems likely.

Thanks.
