The installation instructions on <http://www.gentoo.org/doc/build.html>
contains the following phrase (section 8, last paragraph):
"After you execute these commands, you'll be "inside" your new Gentoo Linux
environment, and the last step before we can grab the Portage tree and
bootstrap is to configure your network settings."
This is both confusing as the network interface IS already configured
(providing you followed the instructions in section 4) and also the
1.0_rc6-r14 tarball doesn't contain the ifconfig command so it is not possible
to configure the network interface. If you refer to specific settings other
than address and route (which are already set) that should probably be better
already fixed on CVS; will be fixed on the site soon.
