    Unhappy problem with grub... i think...

    Im new to linux. i just started using fedora core 5 about a month ago, but i wanted to switch to gentoo because it's better.

    Anyway, i went through the whole install process up to the part where i am supposed to first reboot my system.

    When grub came up, there wer a bunch of lines going down the screen and it said

    Booting 'Gentoo Linux 2.6.17-r4'

    Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0X83
    kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.17-gentoo-r4 root=/dev/hda3

    Error 15: File not found

    Press any key to continue...

    please help me because i really dont want all this time i put into the installation to go to waist.

    Look at this tutorial.
    About 1/3 of the way down you will see where Nerderello gives in struction on how to find /boot/grub/stage1 and so on.
    Error 15 normally means that you have something wrong in your grub entry.
    Hopefully the solution will be so easy.
