Install of Gentoo 2004.1 on Sun V60x

A micro howto on installing Gentoo 2004.1 on the Sun Microsystems V60x. First of all follow the Installation Handbook at the Gentoo site, its an absolute must. I came along problems after booting from the Gentoo CDROM and not been able to see SCSI Controller and NIC devices.
Booted from the Gentoo 2004.1 2004.1 Universal x86 cdrom.
Using the default boot Gentoo did not find the SCSI controller and NIC devices.
Using “lspci” command I identified the Adaptec AIC-7902 SCSI controller and Intel Corp. 82546EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller (1000baseT).
