Gentoo: GRUB doesn't load any kernels
I don't know if this should go in the Linux Newbie or Gentoo specific sub-section: I am pretty new though.
Anyway, here's the problem.
I've compiled Gentoo, it's all good. And I emerge GRUB. I edit the grub.conf file and specify the root, kernel locations. Then I run grub-install, and install it in the MBR. It ran fine, and the locations were all correct.
Now the thing is, when I reboot the computer, GRUB loads into the console. From there, I have to manually set root(hd0,0), the kernel location, and then issue boot again. It's annoying. I've checked for any typos or anything in grub.conf, and there's nothing. I've even manually setup GRUB. Still the same result. At boot, it loads the console, and I have to specify the root and kernel locations, every time.
