First of all thanks for the feedback everyone.
I guess you are all right to suspect a hardware problem but i am using
extensively tested equipment (or at least i been told so). Anyway,
yesterday i succeded, the only change i made was choosing the liveCD
kernel instead of the gentoo sources, and so far, everything is
working, does it makes sense to you?
