Another Grub problem .. I think?
I am totally new with gentoo, i have succesfull installed , and compiled kernel (genkernel). The problem is, when reboot, I can boot with XP but I have a blanc screen if I choose gentoo
I have gentoo and XP on my hp pavilion ze4115. My hd set is:
this is my Grub.conf:
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.7-r11
kernel /kernel-2.6.7-gentoo-r11 root=dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda5 vga=791
chainloader = +1
by the way, I use stage3.
Could somebody please help me, why I can not boot gentoo, while my XP work fine?

I think your "kernel" line should point to real_root=/dev/hda6. No harm in trying it:
When you get the GRUB splash screen, hit an up or down key to stop the coutdown clock so you can read the instructions. Select Gentoo with the up/dn keys and the hit e to edit. Down key to select the kernel line, e to edit and then make the change. Enter to accept, enter again to boot (all of this is in the instructions which you will see).
The editing is good only for the one boot, so the change is not permanent. If all works, you can edit your grub.conf file to make it permanent.
I don't know about te "vga=791" part. You might want to Google it./IMHO
