Here is the detail when I was installing Gentoo liunx:

# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# env-update

At this point, I get the following messages:

>>>Note: /etc/make.profile isn't available; an 'emerge sync' will probably fix this.
Regenerating /etc/ld.so.cache...

When I try to do 'emerge sync' I get the following message:

>>>starting rsync with rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage...
rsync: getaddrinfo:rsync.gentoo.org 873: Temporary failure in name resolution rsync error: errorin socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c (97)

experts...please help me:)

I had the same error and just now got it working.

I have a Dell Inspiron 3500. To get my Netgear FA410 working, I edited /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to comment out the IRQ excludes. It tries to block the pcmcia card from using IRQs 4 and 7... which I think the card needs.

Code:
# nano -w /etc/pcmcia/config.opts

and make it look like:
Code:
# First built-in serial port
#exclude irq 4
# Second built-in serial port
#exclude irq 3
# First built-in parallel port
#exclude irq 7

Do that before you insmod or modprobe anything. Next,
Code:
# modprobe 8390
# insmod pcmcia_core
# insmod i82365
# insmod ds
# cardmgr -f


You'll still get some errors, but this time they will be different. Next,

Code:
# ifconfig eth0 up
# dhcpcd eth0


These will give errors as well, but if you run ifconfig one more time, you'll see that you have an IP!

Does that help?
