I have tried twice to no avail, when i check check my partition, it is there. When I chroot off the CD and mount the partition and check the file, it is there. But for some reason I am botching the config setup or something because i keep getting error code 15 from grub – what could be wrong?!

    If your kernel image is located in /boot on the proper partition, check your grub.conf file for errors (misspelled kernel image filename, wrong partition, etc).
