"kernel /kernel-2.6.13-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192
in grub.conf should be on one line -- sorry --
I see that it was split into two lines at the space between 8192 and
real_root when it came back to me through the mail list handler and my mail
client. Probably happened to you also. As " real_root=/dev/hda3 udev " are
kernel arguments they need to be on the same line as "kernel".
This should solve the first problem.
Make the change above to grub.conf .
I think the second problem is not related to the first. There is
probably a problem with the network settings. Page 40 to 46 of the amd64
gentoo handbook are a good start on the networking problem. Short summary

May I suggest (presuming your intent was to have the network mount
automatically and you connect via ethernet):

If the response is "/sbin/dhcpcd" then the dhcp client demon is installed.
If "No such file or directory" error occurs, dhcpcd needs to be emerged. (Or

Run the command: (modified if you wanted to use and have emerged some other
