Exclamation Gentoo GRUB Error

I am feeling problem in setting grub in Gentoo 2004.2, and hope you will help me. I partioned my hard drive as;
/dev/hda6 as /boot
/dev/hda7 as swap
/dev/hda8 as /
Following is my grub.conf;

default 0
timeout 30
title=Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,5)
kernel /kernel-2.4.29-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/ram0 initrd=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda8
initrd /initrd-2.4.26-gentoo-r6

root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

When I boot my system, first there is no option of "Windows" in GRUB bootloader. Secondly When I select "Gentoo Linux" following error appears;

Booting "Gentoo Linux"
root (hd0,5)
Filesystem type is ext3fs partition type 0x83
initrd /initrd-2.4.26-gentoo-r6
Error19: Linux kernel must be loaded first before initrd
Press any key to continue

When I press any key, my system reboots. Can you tell me how can I solve this problem. Moreove I compiled my kernel using "genkernel"
