It's advised you give the "Portage Introduction" a quick readover at this URL:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-mips.xml?part=2&chap=1

(The mips bits of the handbook are very outdated, so don't fully expect other 
mips bits there to work, we need a docs dev that can help get things 
straightened out).

It's a little unfair to throw some users new to gentoo right into the 
experimental stuff sometimes, but that's the nature of O2 units right now, as 
well as some of the other mips hardware.  I'll probably stable-mark arcboot in 
a few days to clear up some of the confusion, and eventually put one of the 
2.6 mips-sources stable (2.6.9 is unstable now).
