after following the gentoo handbook i installed i rebooted my computer. i get that error and i have no idea what to do.

my hd is partitioned in a way hda1 450 MB swap,hda2 5.5 gb where gentoo installation is and 32 gb empty partition. hda2 and hda3 are reiserfs partitions with 3.6 jurnal.

i think that grub is on my mbr becouse i did something like grub.install /dev/hda.

Code:
default 0
timeout 30
title gentoo by rd
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/boot/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda2


the above is my /boot/grub/grub.conf

i do not have a separate partition mounted as /boot.

i used fdisk and made partition containing gentoo bootable.

anz help appreciated

Code:
22 : No such partition
    This error is returned if a partition is requested in the device part of a device- or full file name which isn't on the selected disk.

So grub can't find the partition or the kernel image
Quote:
kernel /boot/boot/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda2

Do you have a directory called boot in your /boot directory?

removing a boot/ from that does not help. and for some reason i have a boot directory in /boot that seems to point at /boot.
