Hi,

I had just finished stage3 install (as a part of stage1on3), and at the moment as stumped.

Grub gone mad
Aye, grub is a dangerous beast. Usually very helpful too, but not now!

First off the issue is most likley lies in my harddrive configuration. It is as follows:
Code:
/dev/sda1 NTFS (XP will be installed there sometime soon)
/dev/sda2 Boot
/dev/sda3 Swap
/dev/sda4 Root



Yes it is sda. That has been giving nightmares to other distros too... anyhow.
My entry for Linux is as folows:
Code:
title GNU/Linux Gentoo 2005.1 (kernel 2.6.12)
root (sd0,1)
kernel /kernel-2.6.12 root=/dev/sda4



The error I am gettig while trying to boot is as follows:
Code:
root (sd0,1)
Error 23: Error while parsing number



thanks,
Victor

Grub uses hdX no matter what the device is called by the kernel. So, sdX is wrong. Simply change that to hdX.
