Gentoo and Grub

I'm running Gentoo Linux on my laptop, and everything works wonderful except for the boot. I've got grub atm (rolls eyes) and I can't get the stupid thing to load into the splash screen. It gives me the grub prompt and I have to type configfile /boot/grub/grub.conf in order to boot linux the rest of the way. Boot partition is hda1 and root partition is hda3.

Grub.conf looks like this:

Default 0
Timeout 30
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3

Any ideas?
