error loading os

bleh, ok so i just finished redoing stage 1 on gentoo...again only to find when i reboot, i get the error message error loading os, so i realize this is a problem with grub...but i have NO idea what to do, i dunno if this will help but these are the steps i took in installing grub
emerge grub
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf
default 0
timeout 30

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.5
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.5-r1 root=/dev/ram0 real_root=/dev/$ROOT init=/linuxrc vga=0x317 splash=verbose
initrd /initrd-2.6.5-gentoo

any ideas why it would be acting weird? the only thing i could have thought of is because the onl hd i had in was hdb, but i switched that o master and changed fstab and everything so im lost now

Dunno grub, but LILO is a safe choice, even if it can do less things.
