    I don't see how it causes a problem since I've always booted reiserfs partitions, and never had a problem, though I'm not expert on grubs 1.5 stage since I've never had problems with it.

    the kernel is actually kept on (hd0,2). GRUB seems to find it fine, otherwise i would get a "file not found", and it seems to load the OS, i just get a kernel panic at the point described above and the whole process freezes.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    ok, i edited the grub.conf to this:
    Code:
     root &#40;hd0,2&#41;
    kernel &#40;hd0,2&#41;/boot/kernel-2.6.12-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda3
    unfortunately i get the same problem


    EDIT: ok, it's definitely not GRUB because i compiled a genkernel and it all works. now i get to try and find what i forgot to compile into the kernel (woohoo).
