Awesome I will try that when I get back home tonight... I just wanted to clarify something to make sure that what you said was correct.
Down below you put root (hd0,0) that is correct even for my S-ATA drive that is sda? Not that I dont think you are correct just want to make sure that we are on the same page.
Second I installed the kernel 2.6.9-gentoo-r14 as compaired to the one it lists in the installation manual. So after you compile the kernel and have to copy the new bzimage over to the boot directory I would use the full name of the file 2.6.9-gentoo-r14 right?
Thanks again for all of your help
