Default problem with 2 partition installation from gent oo minimal system

I had this problem too... the problem was SCSI not being compiled in my
kernel alongside the SATA driver. Remember to ensure none of them are being
built into modules.

Subject: [gentoo-user] problem with 2 partition installation from gentoo
minimal system

Hello Group, I spend a whole day trying to get this to work. Here is my

/dev/sda1 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/sda2 swap

grub is installed using the 'root (hd0,0)' and 'setup (hd0)', no problem.

emerge kernel-sources worked fine.

However everytime the system boots, it reports the VFS panic (no root
system found problem). The kernel has built in ext2 and ext3 support.
The error hint is to supply root option during boot, but my boot command
is this
kernel /boot/kernel root=/dev/sda1

Is there something missing that I didn't think of that's causing the
failures? I followed the steps outlined here:

except I am using a 2 partition setup.
