My confusion is if I used genkernel and created a full set of modules and initramfs do I need this Step 7.e. (Configuring the Modules) in the Kernel Modules installation? I have gathered some module information from http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/DELL/R610 site. This is my first install of Gentoo, pardon any ignorance, I am just learning hence NewBee. Any clarification would be appreciated. I have read another post about this from 2010 but really did not have clarification.

skip the step; it is legacy and for special cases
do make sure grub.conf knows you have an initrd initramfs when you get to grub
