I would guess that you did not create an initrd/initramfs. if not, your grub.conf root and kernel lines should not be trying to find to find the root filesystem at /dev/ram0.

try
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/xfkernel01 root=/dev/sda3

If you did create an initrd/initramfs, your grub.conf needs an initrd line

root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/xfkernel01 real_root=/dev/sda3
initrd /boot/your initramfs name --use ls /boot to find name

apologies, I tracked off on the problem you had not gotten to yet ..
boot cd
mount the gentoo partitions and check the kernel name and that the boot symlink exists:
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
ls -l /mnt/gentoo/boot

the kernel name in /mnt/gentoo/boot/grub.conf must exactly match the name in /mnt/gentoo/boot.
Code:
nano /mnt/gentoo/boot/grub.conf
to fix
you should have a symlink line similar to
Quote:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1 Oct 18 2011 boot -> .
Code:
cd /mnt/gentoo/boot
ln -s . boot
to fix

Monte5,

Error 15 mens that a file you have named in grub.conf does not exist in /boot, so grub cannot load it.

Code:
kernel /boot/xfkernel01 root=/dev/ram0 real_root=/dev/sda3

Tells grub to load the file /boot/xfkernel01 - does that file exist?

You may also be trying to laod an initrd file, which is not shown in your error report.
The same rules apply - file names mentioned in grub.conf must exit in /boot and be identical.
In your case xfkernel01 will not find XFkernel01. Case matters.

read this carefully about Error 15:

I think your solution is in this !
