grub-install command not found !

Help buddies,

I am almost about to finalise my gentoo installation and was ready to prance on my legs,suddenly after configuring the /boot/grub/grub.conf
and doing
# grep -v rootfs /proc/mounts > /etc/mtab
# grub-install --no-floppy /dev/hda
command not found error
then i quitted chrooted environment and again did
livecd /#grub-install --no-floppy /dev/hda
bash :grub :command not found

Please help,where I am going wrong,I cannot wait my PC to reboot.
Gentoo really tasted my patience !!

Yeah sure!!
Solution is that one should be very carefully while installing gentoo and if he/she is first time installing then can't afford to miss a single step.

I did a blunder ,I missed
#emerge grub
