Default can't load driver of vmware network on livecd 2008-0-r1

hi:**since I used to install Gentoo through a Universal CD on x86, there's no need to prepare a network connection before my own kernel is ready, *as to livecd2008, network has to be configured to download a stage3 tarball, I started my livecd in vmware server, lspci shows my card is :
** Ethernet controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE] (rev 10)

somehow, loading the module results in error as follow:*SQUASHFS error: zlib_inflate returned unexpected result 0xfffffffb, srclength 131072, avail_in 722, avail_out 0
SQUASHFS error: sb_bread failed reading block 0xb2d0SQUASHFS error: Unable to read fragment cache block [2ca5fcb]
SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 2ca5fcb, size e307WARNING: Cound not read '/lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r5/kernel/drivers/net/mii.ko': Input/output error
SQUASHFS error: zlib_inflate returned unexpected result 0xfffffffd, srclength 131072, avail_in 0, avail_out 4481SQUASHFS error: sb_bread failed reading block 0xb24a
SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 2c89c32, size 8c67Module len 131072 truncated
FATEL: Error inserting pcnet32 (/lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r5/kernel/drivers/net/pcnet32.ko): Invalid module format

seems the module is invalid, but how this could happen? why the card is not configured automatically by the livecd?
uname -a returns:
Linux livecd 2.6.24-gentoo-r5 #1 SMP Thu Jun 26 18:36:15 UTC 2008 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


any clue for the error?*
thanks*fei

perhaps the pcnet32 modules has a known bug around, I fixed the problem by configuring VMware to simulate a "e1000" ethernet card. hope this would help to those noobs.*
tks
