lspci is part of pciutils, running "emerge pciutils" should produce it.
running "ls -l /lib/modules" should produce a directory name in the
format '2.6.15-gentoo-r5' exact name depending on what kernel you
compiled. running
"
find  /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r5 -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname
'*.ko'
"
(where "2.6.15-gentoo-r5" is replaced by your kernel name and all is
typed on one line) will produce the list of modules you compiled with
the kernel.
from the handbook:7.e. Configuring Kernel Modules


Configuring the Modules

You should list the modules you want automatically loaded
in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6. You can add extra options to the
modules too if you want.

To view all available modules, run the following find command. Don't
forget to substitute "<kernel version>" with the version of the kernel
you just compiled:


Code Listing 18: Viewing all available modules


# find /lib/modules/<kernel version>/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'

For instance, to automatically load the 3c59x.o module, edit the
kernel-2.6 file and enter the module name in it.


Code Listing 19: Editing /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6


# nano -w /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
Code Listing 20: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6


3c59x

the livecd was 2006.0 or 2005.?

run lspci and see if it identifies the wifi
was kernel configured to support wifi? and your card?

run lspci and see if it identifies the ethernet card

this this will produce only if the kernel was configured for 8139C+
(10/100mbit) support as a module and the card is 8139C+

run modprobe 8139too, this will produce only if the kernel was
configured for 8139 support as a module and the card is 8139/8129/810x

run modprobe r8169, this will produce only if the kernel was configured
for 8169 (gigabit) support as a module and the card is 8169
