You may wish to ask the same question in the Gentoo forums.

Try hitting your keyboard during the boot process.
If you get any boot prompt, type your <flavor> here and then type
Code:
root=/dev/hdb1
, for example. (adapt /dev/hdb1 to your real root partition.)
The flavor may be linux, or idepci, or isapnp, or bf24. Also try rescue.
