I figured it out. The kernel on the LiveCD had built-in support for the AUII 
port, not the built-in 10baseT port. Fortunately, I had a 10baseT AUII dongle 
from my now retired Performa 6100. I plugged that in I could access the network. 
It was necessary to have networking, because I share /usr/portage via NFS from 
one of my other Gentoo boxes. I'm installing on a 2Gb drive, so space is at a 
premium.
