grub missing kernel...

do you have a specific boot partition?
if hd0,4 is your boot partition, then your boot partition is
the root filesystem as far as grub is concerned.
try removing boot/ from the kernel line.

kernel /kernel-2.6.4

here is the example from my system, with a specific /boot 
title LFS
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /lfs vga=6 root=/dev/hdb1 ro hdc=scsi hdd=scsi
# from /etc/fstab
/dev/hda1               /boot  # corresponds to hd0,0 as 
seen by grub
/dev/hdb1               /          # actual root partition

hope this helps.
