Question Does Anyone Know how to get out of this?

Ok I have been having troubles installing linux... I used GNU GRUB and when it trys to boot I get...

kernel /kernel-2.4.25-gentoo ...(not important)...

Error 15: File not found

so I changed it too kernel-2.4.25-gentoo-r1
and changed the initrd to initrd-2.4.25-gentoo-r1

Why does the -r1 work but not the regular????

This works but its comes to my next problem described below

To try and attempt what my screen looks like I will show you what it says when I type "help"... hopefully someone will know what I am stuck in:

/ # help

Built-in commands:
. : alias bg break cd chdir continue eval exec exit export false
fg hash help jobs kill let local pwd read readonly return set
shift times trap true type ulimit umask unalias unset wait

Does anyone know how to get out of this?????

Looks like you forgot to copy your kernel to /boot, or else you typed the name wrong. use your Gentoo boot disk to boot the computer, then mount your drives exactly like you did in Chapter 4.e Mounting (exact commands depend on your partition layout).
mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
Then you should check to see if your kernel bzImage really is where it should be:
ls /mnt/gentoo/boot
Check to see if the file is there, check the spelling, and update your grub.conf if necessary.
