grub problems...gentoo on slave


hello,

I'm installing gentoo on my slave drive of IDE1. When I get to the grub setup I'm alittle confused as to how to setup the partition/HDD settings.

for the actual setup i used:

Code:
root (hd1,0)
setup (hd0,0)
quit
and my grub config is:

Code:
default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux 2.4.25
root (hd1,0)
kernel /kernel-2.4.25-gentoo root=/dev/hda3
splash image does not load...i just get a blinkin cursor and when I hit enter text appears all funky looking that says something like 'couldnt mount partition...filesystem unknown'.

Now does grub.conf read the hd info differently than when i setup grub? If linux is on my IDE slave drive wouldnt my splashimage and root in grub.conf have to point to hd1,0?
