So i decided that my network problem was something i missed in the install process. So i opted to try again. I figured since the LiveCD can detect all my hardware with no problems and everything works fine i should try Genkernel....which i know generates a generic kernel which applys to most hardware. So i did. Now onto the new problem i have....When i boot up my Grub splash screen does not show, i just get a black screen...i know i pointed to the right destination (splashimage = (hd0,1) /boot/grub/......)....when i hit enter linux boots, and then i get white lines down the screen for a few seconds and i cant read a thing....then Gentoo starts bootiing up..and everything is fine.....i set the vga statement to 794 in the kernel line...anybody know what the issue could be here???
here is my grub file
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.15
kernel /kernel-genkernel-x86_64-2.6.15-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/raminit=/linuxrc
ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda4 udev vga=794
# Dual boot to Win XP
