Does root (hd0,6) hda6 if so that would put to SUSE 10.1 so should I change it to (hd0,7) which would be hda7 and be the Gentoo Linux 2006 Partition...

    Okaaaayyyy... I think I get it. You had fedora, along side of it you installed suse (which you used to boot both fedora and suse as well as windows), and now you installed gentoo over fedora, and are editing the fstab file in suse.

    So if you followed the guide to the letter, you have the kernel on hda7 in /boot/. This is then hd(0,6) as I mentioned, since hd(0,0) would point to hda1, hd(0,1) to hda2, etc. The only thing I can think of is that you didn't read the documentation well: I've just now noticed that you don't have 'root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda3 udev', which you should

    So should I edit the fstab and is this correct
    root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda7 udev

    Yup, I think it should work now. As for the other thread, you have to have fstab correctly configured, in my case it's:
    /dev/hda8 / reiserfs noatime 0 1

    in yours it would be the same but with /dev/hda7.

    off-topic: it's two in the morning here :P

    Would mine be ext3 and its (Monday 7:55 PM here) also how would I access my fstab and can you show me what your fstab and menu.lst is configured.

    Yes, if you used ext3 you should have ext3 in fstab. I configured mine during the install, but you can configure it in suse, just mount the gentoo partition so it's not read-only.

    /boot/grub/menu.lst (in kanotix):

    default 2
    timeout 15

    title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.11-kanotix-11
    root (hd0,4)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-kanotix-11 root=/dev/hda5 ro ramdisk_size=100000 lang=us apm=power-off nomce vga=0x317
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.11-kanotix-11
    boot

    title Gentoo 2.6.16-r3
    root (hd0,7)
    kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.16-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0 ro init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda8 udev video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,
    initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.16-gentoo-r3
    boot

    (Kanotix is on hda5, I only added it so you can compare it to gentoo, I left out windows as well as another gentoo kernel which is exactly the same as the one above, only the version numbers are different)

    my fstab (in gentoo, /etc/fstab):

    /dev/hda8 / reiserfs noatime 0 1
    /dev/hda7 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 defaults,noexec,noauto,unhide,users,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0

    # NOTE: The next line is critical for boot!
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0

    /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 ntfs auto,users,exec,ro,umask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5 auto auto,users,exec, 0 0
    /dev/hda6 /mnt/hda6 vfat auto,users,exec,umask=000,shortname=mixed,quiet 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000 0 0

    you forgot to append the real_root option to your grub entry. read over the section in the gentoo handbook about the grub entry for genkernel and modify your grub accordingly
    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?
