You might have accidently disabled support for your filesystem in the kernel.** Make sure it's enabled, and try again

I am trying to install gentoo on a desktop machine. I downloaded the minimal CD and followed the instruction in the quick installation. Now, I have a problem either in the grub configuration or in kernel and I need help to figure this one out.
I have existing partitions for windows and my previous Fedora (/home directory), therefore I installed gentoo on /dev/hda3. The problem is I get a kernel panic when I try to boot. In grub I am using (hd0,2) as my root, because I don't want to write anything to the mbr. After editing grub.conf, I run a grub shell, and execute the commands root(hd0,2) then setup(hd0,2). Then tried to reboot.
Here the relevant part of grub.conf:
kernel (hd0,2)/boot/kernel root=/dev/hda3
I don't have a separate partition for boot, it's on the root "/" filesystem.
Can anyone tell what's going on ? If there's missing info please let me know, as everyone has different way when troubleshooting a problem.
