     There's your problem, eth0 is a firewire link.  Issue the following commands:

rc-update del net.eth0
ln -s /etc/init.d/net.eth0 /etc/init.d/net.eth1
rc-update add net.eth1 default

     That should do the trick.  And even as a Gentoo developer I hate genkernel 
;-)  Then again, I'm more hands on.
