Raggamuffin,

Code:
root (sd0,0)
is wrong. Grub has no knowledge of how a disk is connected to the PC, the BIOS hides that information, so grub sees all drivers as hd.
Code:
root (hd0,0)
is the correct syntax and refers to the first partition on the first hard driive detected by the BIOS.

=========== Edit
This thread is moved to Duplicates in favour of Grub Error Collection [Part 4] and The Gentoo Grub Error Collection
