When you boot does grub come up? Does it show you a pretty graphical menu with the "Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-r3" on the list or does it come up with the error right away?

I'm sorry, I seamed to have led you astray a bit. I didn't realize that the genkernel uses a ramdisk for root. Your going to need to set root=/dev/ram0 instead of /dev/hda3. Also, I'm not sure what text editor your using or whatnot, but make sure the read_root=/dev/hda3 udev part is on the same line as the rest of the kernel options.

BTW... do not bump your post more then once in a 36 hour period or twice ever. The forum software automatically bumps posts with no response.

Bump posts tend to annoy the users and make them less likely to respond.
