Thanks for the reply.  I updated the bios on the sk8v with the beta version 
that was posted on the asus website.

bad news got a cmos error.  Went through all the proper steps, called tech 
at asus and I fried the bios chip they
are sending me a new one, so next week I'll try this again.  But this was a 
fresh install, fresh fdisk and I did the first emerge sync and this happened.
