well, i know im no genius, but i thought I could do this no problem.

following the install instructions, and I come across 2 snags that I could use your help for.

1) realtek 8139 onboard lan, net-setup eth0 works fine, but Im trying to load the module so it gets built into my kernel, but I cant find it anywhere...help!!

2) scsi - I was trying to modprobe aic7xxx (which I know is the right module for my adaptec u160lp card) and it says the module is not found. along with sr_mod and sd_mod. what gives? I thought it would be as easy as just installing the modules but I cant find them!!

last but not least, not a snag, but I want to be sure that I only need the emu10k1 module for my sblive card. or is there more to it? this is gonna be fun!

thanks in advance for any support.

Mike

and thats not all... in 1.4 version it does not detect promise fasttrack133 ataraid chip (20276 version) also 1.2 does detect and let you run insmod pdcraid but it does something strange and system freezes with no worning no response in keyboard at random places no logick
it can freeze while you where typing.. it alsos did freeze while rsyning
also it freezed just after i'v extracted stage3 tarball... for now it looks like instalation of 1.4gentoo is a problem :(

godxzilla, I can't tell from your post whether you're compiling things directly into your kernel or as modules. Which is it? Are you setting things in menuconfig to [M] or [*]?

So you're booted from the CD, then? What are the contents of /lib/modules, and what does "uname -a" say?

i shall add that there are several problems with the kernel on the 1.4rc1 iso ... pcmcia support also has been forgotten completely on the cd ... but i shall add that it is not nessecary to use a 1.4 iso to install gentoo 1.4 - you also can install gentoo 1.4 perfectly from a 1.2 cd ... see my post here
