Anybody familiar with this error or on how to fix it?

root(hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /kernel-2.6.9-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/hda3

Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting.



Thanks

Did you run this from the GRUB command line ?
Are you sure that kernel image is valid ?

This came up when I tried to boot.

I'm not sure if the kernel image is valid. How do I check this?

probably your grub.conf is incorrect, can you post it
(boot from live cd, mount your partitions,chroot, nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf)

Please, keep your discussion inside the grub error collection.
