can you add the modules for sis900 in network? I can't install gentoo 1.4-rc1 because I can't connect to internet...

I know it's asking you to download a lot more stuff, but if you can boot from a 1.2 CD, you can install 1.4rc1 using the process rojaro describes here.

I've not seen a network module like sis900 been taken out.
did you modprobe it manually ?

my laptop runs perfectly with it.

sis900 is what I use, and it's in the standard kernel, so inherently it's in the gentoo kernel also. It's can be compiled as module or into the kernel.

arkane, what module do you use to bring up the sis900? When I boot from the 1.4rc1 cd, I have no eth0 (just lo) and a sis900 module is nowhere to be found.. at least that was modprobe tells me.. ("modprobe sis900")

So if it is compiled into the kernel, it isnt doing much.
