Grub Error (conf included)
I am so close to having gentoo up. When I boot the system, grub gives me this

Error 13: invalid or unsupported executable format

# Grub.conf File
default 0
timeout 0

title=gentoo 2.6.7
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.7 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda3
initrd /initrd-2.6.7

my hard drive is partition as follows

hda1 is /boot
hda2 is swap
hda3 is /

Does someone know what I've done wrong? If its fixable?

It means that your kernel-image can't be booted, something is wrong whith it.

Try re-installing the kernel-packages or recompile the kernel.

I am now running gentoo, and it only took about 5hrs. Still got some kinks I'll have to work on, but I can boot to the system.

Thanks for the advice, I just used the cd and recompiled the kernel

I am a bit late but
root (hd0,0)
should have be
root (hd0,2)
