This is my first gentoo install and I'm having trouble finding the driver for my network module. I'm trying to install on an old HP pavilion http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00690880&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3192908#N463. I dont know what driver i need for the integrated network card and i cannot find the wireless card either. Help would be greatly appreciated.

the easy way is using lspci -k that will tell you the driver name to use, like this
Code:
lspci -k | grep -A2 Eth
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)
   Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. M3A78-EH Motherboard
   Kernel driver in use: r8169
