grub> after reboot. Now what?
I got Gentoo installed onto my system and used the instructions under “Default: Setting up GRUB using grub-install” on http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...p=10#doc_chap2
It told me to do a few things and then type reboot. I did. The system came up and said "grub>" This is not what was supposed to happen. I went and read some online help and figured out that I should be able to boot the system from the grub> prompt *if* I know what to do. I typed root (hd0,0) (My /root partition is on sda1 so this seemed right.) and it didn't complain.
Now it appears I am supposed to type "kernel <kernel>" I think my kernel version is kernel-2.6.16-r3 but I am not sure A) if this is the right file and B) where it is, since the grub> prompt keeps saying "Error 15: File not found"
I think I am on the right path but I can't tell how to find out what exactly it is looking for.
Any suggestions concerning how to fix this would be appreciated.
