1. make sure the KB settings are set with "US" not sun key map if using  
2.6.xx
2. you will have to make sure you build the proper drivers into the kernel  
to get the network device to work.
the livecd does hardware detection then loads those drivers, I am not an  
expert but just copying the kernel from the livecd won't give you that  
functionality.
if you can get the kernel from the livecd to boot, then you have a working  
system, so to speak, to work from. compare the options selected in your  
kernel vs. the livecd...of course now i am wondering if you didnt do the  
makemenuconfig on the livecd kernel you won't be able to see those options.
bottom line is the system works it is now down to playing with the configs.

hope that helps
