my hdd is a SATA

my configuration :

SDA1 /boot ext2 (Bootable)
SDA5 /home ext3
SDA6 / ext3
SDA7 SWAP swap
SDA8 /var ext3

my grub.conf :

Quote:
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-2.6.13-gentoo-r3
root=/dev/ram0
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-2.6.13-gentoo-r3

'The root block device is unspecified or not detected'
Please specify a device to boot or shell for a shell...
