    Depends if you used Genkernel or not. If you did, then it should look something like this:

    (note in this case gentoo is on hda8 )
    Code:
    title       Gentoo 2.6.16-r9
    root      (hd0,7)
    kernel   /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.16-gentoo-r9 root=/dev/ram0 ro init=linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda8 udev
    initrd     /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.16-gentoo-r9
    boot
    Edit: formating... stupid smilies :P

    Play around with the settings, make sure you have the various harddrives written correctly. I've found that most problems with Grub are related to incorrect settings in the .conf file. Also check spelling, even one letter can mean the difference between booting the kernel and getting an error message.

    After you get the Error 15 statement when booting,, hit any key.
    Then hit "c" to bring you to a grub> prompt.
    You know your root is at hd0,6, so type

    root (hd0,6)
    And hit ENTER
    You should see a message stating what file system is on that partition.
    Now type
    kernel /boot/
    And hit TAB
    That will show you what is available to put in here.
    Look for the vmlinuz file and put that in there, so the line will look like

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz*****
    Then do the same thing with initrd as you did with the kernel command.
    All of this was taken from Nerderellos grub tutorial which can be found in the tutorials section.
