kernel panic


VFS: Cannot open root device "303" or unkown-bock(3,3)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount Root FS on Uknown-block(3,3)

it seems like a problem with ur boot loader eg lilo or grub. Im not to familiar with gentoo, but see if u can use a boot disk to have a temoporary shell and look at ur boot loader config files eg lilo.conf look for where it says "root=" and check if that's the partition u installed to
