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 )
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

You should see a message stating what file system is on that partition.
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
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.How to know if you are a geek.
