Code:

Required Kernel Parameters:
       real_root=/dev/$ROOT
       
       Where $ROOT is the device node for your root partition as the
       one specified in /etc/fstab

If you require Genkernel's hardware detection features; you MUST
tell your bootloader to use the provided INITRAMFS file. Otherwise;
substitute the root argument for the real_root argument if you are
not planning to use the initramfs...

WARNING... WARNING... WARNING...
Additional kernel cmdline arguments that *may* be required to boot properly...
add "vga=791 splash=silent, theme:default console=tty1 quiet" if you use a splash framebuffer ]
With support for several ext* filesystems around it may be needed to
add "rootfstype=ext3" or "rootfstype=ext4"


Something i should worry about? i don't mind adding these lines, the matter is i don't understand where i should add them.

Required Kernel Parameters:
real_root=/dev/$ROOT

this is required: the root-device for the system, eg /dev/sda5

the rest is optional (most likely) depending on features you like or dislike on boot.
it's called grub kernel commandline; you pass arguments to the kernel before booting and they influence its behavior (like using a frambuffer, showing a splashscreen etc.)
the place to add them is in grub.conf (or menu.lst) for grub <1.0 after the path to the kernel-image, eg.
Code:
title MYBOX
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/3.4.9 root=/dev/sda5 vga=791 <insert here>
<other statements, eg initramfs>


GOOD LUCK!
