well guys its me again. hopefully this will be my last post for a succesfull gentoo install. after many days with fighting with this install i finally boot into grub!!! which is a big plus for me. because ive never succesfully booted into grub. anyhow. i select gentoo linux to load up. then imeadiatly im confronted with an error. but i found out that problem. i just forgot to add a number while making the grub. so i "fixed" that for now. and starts booting. then after 20seconds or so im faced with tthis error:

fsc.ext3: no such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ROOT
/dev/ROOT:
the superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. if the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>


what confuses me is that i didnt go with ext2. i went with ext3 for the boot and reisers for the Root. any clues? thanks guys.

hi, i think that your problem resides in grub config or fstab (maybe you could paste those files for a complete debug). try to replace /dev/ROOT with /dev/hda<nr> if you have ide or /dev/sda<nr> if you have serial ata, where nr is the number of your root file system . maybe you could paste teh result of the command fdisk -l also

Also don't forget change other device names /dev/BOOT and /dev/SWAP.
