gentoo doesnt boot

i think that means that there are problems with the kernel. maybe something became corrupt when you compiled it. try decompiling and recompiling it and see if that works.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?

ha there is no reasen to reinstall simply chroot back in to the install with the install cd we do it all the time it is the way itis done nothing is realy broken and chances are that it will just happen again.... so post the /boot/grub/grub.cont there is prob a typo in that config
