Yes, you're a dummy for not searching before posting. :)

Also, please do not ever post screen shots of errors as a picture file in any format. A good number of us visit these forums in text-only browsers, or turn off images for speedier browsing. These people will not appreciate you doing what you just did. ;)

Since you are using virtual PC in windows, just copy and paste the text in the virtual PC console. Or if that does not work, type in the error message by hand. Enclose the error message in [code] ... [/code] BBCode tags for legibility.

Code:
default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-r3
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda3
initrd /initrd-2.6.11-gentoo-r3

Add "udev" to the end of the same line that specifies your kernel.
