I have created root partition without a separate boot partition .
after installing grub every time it boot in command line mode so I should type these

root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-3.8.130gentoo root=/dev/sda1
boot

how can grub boot automatically?

I solved it with

cp -a /grub /boot/

why I use emerge grub the grub folder is in / but not in /boot?

looks like you did not run
Code:
mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot
after running
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
and before skipping
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot

I only have one partition

/dev/sda1 ext4

so i can not mount /dev/sda3

and i have done the

mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot

and the kernel-3.8.13-gentoo stored in /mnt/gentoo/boot/
